We recently caught up with Trey Seymour, a recipient of the 2019/2020 SYNC Athlete Fund, to ask him some questions to get to know him better. Check it out below!
Q: So where did you grow up skiing?
A: Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Q: How has this season been going so far? Are you on track for the goals you set out for yourself at the beginning of the season?
A: The very start of the season was a little slow, but I am skiing well, and the results are starting to come!
Q: What is one fun fact that many friends, teammates, and coaches don't know about you?
A: I used to play 4 instruments.
Q: If you could give yourself one piece of advice when you first started racing what would it be?
A: Don’t worry about results. Just enjoy skiing.
Q: If you were not a ski racer what sport do you think you would pursue instead?
A: Mountain bike racing. I used to race until last year and then skiing became too much to do both.
Q: Can you walk us through your pre-race routine and describe how you mentally prepare?
A: I take a few warm-up runs and focus on my technique. Then I use positive self-talk at the start to focus on the task and control my nerves.
Q: Finally, we have to know, if you could be any part of a burger what would it be and why?
A: The patty because it’s not a burger without a patty.
