“I’d love to be like a cat in the air”
Yann Rausis is a world class freerider. He used to lead the rankings of world class competitions until he got injured. But not even that injury could stifle his passion for freeriding. He is steadily working his way back to the top and dreams of being like a cat in the air.
FOCUSWATER: Whats is your biggest goal?
Yann Rausis: My biggest goal at the moment is to be able to recover totally from my ACL (anterior cruciate ligament= vorderes Kreuzband) injury and to fully express myself on my skis again.
FOCUSWATER: Which victory are you most proud of?
Yann: I’m quite proud of my victory at the «First Track Freeride» in Chandolin in 2016. I used to always miss my runs during this competition until in 2016 I finally broke the chain and did one of the best runs in my life.

FOCUSWATER: Do you have other talents and if so what are they?
Yann: I have always been quite good at understanding mathematics and physics. Despite being talented, studying physics and mathematics required a lot of work!
FOCUSWATER: What would you like to be better at?
Yann: Freestyle skiing! I’d love to be like a cat in the air.
FOCUSWATER: What’s is your personal flow moment?
Yann: When I arrive at the bottom of an intense run, stop, breathe deeply and look back at my line, I can feel the energy flowing through my whole body. That is my flow moment!
FOCUSWATER: What is your favourite experience with FOCUSWATER so far?
Yann: Seeing the bright smile on my friends faces when I make them try a bottle of FOCUSWATER for the first time!
