    He says his tall height has both advantages and disadvantages in his sport. "Most people say it is not good for a slalom skier to be tall, that it's impossible to do it at two metres [tall]. It is harder to get the balance in front and behind because when you are a little behind with the leverage you have, it catapults you forwards fast and you are out [of sync]. But I can handle this, I have good core muscles." (jungfrauzeitung.ch, 10 Jan 2014; skiweltcup.tv, 23 Dec 2017; OIS, 07 Feb 2018)
