The start has never been my biggest strength as a skeleton slider. It often took me a long time to get up to speed, so in photos like this, where the photographer is expecting to get a shot of a slider settled on his sled, I'm still in the process of getting on the thing. So I make up for my lack of athleticism by having ugly speed suits. I've often said that the odds of me looking good in any speed suit are pretty slim, so I might as well look like this. My screaming orange suit was my minimalist phase - here I am in my cubist period. Wait until you see the suits I have coming for 2003 / 04!
