Hello everyone! My name is Konstantinos Lyketsos and I am a professional skier. I was born in Athens, Greece on October 24th 1982. I have studied Business Administration at Deree College in Athens and when I am not skiing I create websites. I have won the Alpine Ski Hellenic Championship 3 times until the age of 18 in both disciplines Giant Slalom/Slalom and I have been competing in many World Cups for teenagers and the Winter Olympic Games under 18 yr in Poprad, Slovakia. At the age of 20 I started freestyle ski which I haven’t stopped since now.
I compete in FIS Halfpipe ski competitions in world cup level and many other European level events when I have the chance. Besides the competitions my passion is to create ski videos with my friends. When I ski, I live in a different world full of creativity and happy thoughts! The best part in skiing is that you can enjoy the sport with your friends. I would recommend skiing to everyone without second thought!!!
Every year I’m trying to become better on my sport and be as competitive as I can against the other riders. A big accomplishment for me is to be able to land perfect all my tricks in my halfpipe run. In the long run I’m trying to accomplish personal satisfaction and lots of good memories in what I do.
My greatest achievement will be to be able to pass all the ski knowledge I have to the new generations through coaching.
For countries like Greece that has no real snowparks and halfpipes to train, the only way to become a freestyle ski competitor is to spend a lot of money in ski trips around Europe and the US for proper training. If we had the facilities in our country I believe that the level of the Greek riders would be the same as the European ones.
The atmosphere around the competition. The speaker saying your name. All competitors know each other and the environment is super friendly. In some comps music is the key factor for better performances. The crowd at the bottom watching you perform. I think it is a great feeling.
During training I have to be focused in what I have to accomplish that day. If I want to learn a new trick I will focus only on that trick instead of just skiing around the park. I will find the right jump of wall in the halfpipe and try my new trick all day. Repetition is key to success.
Hahahaha…I really don’t know.
For the next 4 years I will be training and competing in halfpipe comps mostly and the final goal is the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea 2018. There is also the coaching part of the sport that fascinates me and I have plans to get some certification on that.
