Victoria Jamieson from Britain started snowboaniing at 20. She is now 23 and has won many competitions in this sport. We spoke to her when she was at a snowboarding competition last week in Switzerland and asked her why she started the sport.

'I've always liked all kinds of sports. especially skiing, and it seemed natural to start snowboanting. It doesn't take long to learn and you can become really good in a few months:
We asked her if she had to do a lot of practice. 'Well. in winter I snowboard in the mountains every day from 8.30 a.m. until 4 p.n., I also rim and go biking. But I just love doing it all! I like the competitions and being in the mountains. It's no beautiful. But free-riding. that's doing what you warts when you're not in a competition. is the best thing in the world for me'.

We asked her what is important when you're learning. You can learn quickly but you need lessons It's also important to have the right clothes no you don't get wet because, to begin with, you spend a lot of time falling down!'
