Under that spectacular moustache lies some real talent!
Filip Flisar started skiing back in 1992. From 2004 to 2007 he was a member of the national alpine team, but eventually felt that the discipline didn't fulfil his expectations. Always on the hunt for new challenges, Filip decided to try freestyle.
Filip's first season in freestyle was all about exploration and discovery. He found his forte in big air, so much so that he became a big air national champion, and a Quiksilver Freeride battle winner.
In 2008, Filip decided to focus on ski cross, reaching the top of the sport within three seasons. He then went on to represent Slovenia at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
In January 2012, he won his first World Cup victory in Alpe d'Huez, and now has a number of World Cup wins and a second place at Winter X Games '16.
He became World Ski Cross Champion in January 2015 and has the 2018 Olympic Gold in his sights.Read more
