What's your worst injury or accident?
Any accident that takes me away from skiing for a while makes me unhappy. Some injuries have just been bad timing—taking me away from a competition or training. The injury that took me away from skiing for the longest period of time was a type II MCL tear. However, it was misdiagnosed as a broken leg requiring surgery so I felt happy when my doctor in Canada diagnosed it as “just an MCL tear.”
Do you have a nickname?
The name that everyone in skiing knows me as, Roz, is actually a nickname. Most of the people closest to me call me by my full name, Rosalind or Rosa. The boys I travel with make up new nicknames for me everyday such as Woz, Ross, Rebag (after the snow boarder Ross Rebagliati), Lozenger and the most odd, The Dark Night.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now?
In 10 years, I would like to be healthy and strong, finishing my PhD with an Olympic medal hanging on my wall. I’ll probably be competing in some kind of sport and I’ll still be skiing a lot.
