"The best and fastest way to learn a sport is to watch and imitate a champion."
I prefer the first quotation by Jean-Claude Killy. I think that Killy is right because a champion is a professional, he always trains, so he has a lot of experience and good technique. If you adore a champion, watch him, imitate him and perhaps you will be like him! Believe in yourself, it's the advice I give to everybody who wants to become a professional!
