Ski Olympian plans next crazy relief effort

It is the story of a relief effort for Ukraine that was intended as a one-off last March, but just keeps going to this day. And it is also the story of an incredibly large solidarity within a small ski sport.

Andreas Isoz (38) from Zurich, Olympic athlete in Vancouver in 2010, now managing director of a restaurant and the freestyle summer hill “Jumpin” in Mettmenstetten ZH, wanted to help his Ukrainian friends from the aerials scene who had gotten into trouble after the war began.
