A skier from Venezuela got to compete on snow for the first time the other day at the Nordic World Ski Championships in Norway. His name is Adrian Solano, and he wanted to be a cross-country skier, but there's no snow in Venezuela.
So he used wheels to practice, and didn't try it on snow until he got to Norway. He was in two events . . . only finished one of them . . . and came in dead last.
In the video, he almost falls right out of the gate . . . then falls multiple times on the course, and breaks one of his poles. He says he's still hoping to make the Olympics though.
