A day in the life of ski racer Brad Spence

A day in the life of ski racer Brad Spence

By Georgia Sapounas

Alpine skier Brad Spence is training hard to earn a spot at what will be his second Olympic Games in Sochi 2014. He takes great pride in wearing the maple leaf and stops at nothing to give his everything (just wait until you see his box jumps below).

As a native of Calgary, Alberta, his music taste may not be what you would expect.  He’s a self-proclaimed 70-year-old man in a 29-year-old body, but if you don’t believe him, you can listen to a couple of his favourite tunes on Spence’s athlete profile page.  Aside from a love for great oldies tunes and his dedication to training, follow along as he takes you through a day in his life.

7:08 A.M. Coffee time!

Alright Canadian hockey fans, this Calgary native is cheering on his team.  Are you with him for the Flames?

It looks like Brad’s tea collecting is running thin…can someone help him with that?

Me too, Brad. Me too.
