Lucas Braathen

Lucas Pinheiro Braathen came bursting into the scene in 2019. He represents Norway but brings his Brazilian flair to the alpine ski racing circuit. Based in Oslo, Lucas tends to have a different take on the preseason training including a fair amount of skateboarding.

Random funfact?

My childhood dream was to become a soccer player until the age of 11.

What drives you?

The raw feeling of learning something I haven´t managed before. That´s what I live for!

What’s the wildest thing you’ve been part of?

It´s either reaching my first big goal as a ski racer at 11 years old, or skiing Kitzbühel for the first time in January. Can´t decide!

Probably a monkey swinging from tree to tree in the rainforest in Amazonas!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Always focus on technical tasks over results.
