About the Author: David Babic was born and raised in Washington, Vermont. He is 26 years old and has been skiing competitively for the past 10 years. He earned a spot on the US Freestyle Ski Team in 2002, just after the Olympic games. For the past four years, he has had the amazing opportunity to compete on the World Cup Tour against some of the best athletes in the world. He received his first world cup podium during the '03 Season in Steamboat Springs, Co, and then followed that season with his first World Cup Win in Airolo, Sul. He continues to push his own level by making technical changes in his skiing, and not to mention performing the first every off-axis 1080-degree spin in world cup competition. Gerhard Blochl is 23 years old and have been doing the sport for 7 years year-round. Since his 16th birthday, as a member of the German National Ski Freestyle Team, he has spent about 200 days a year in the snow. In the last couple of years, his work has increasingly focused on his core discipline of moguls, so it is all the more pleasant for him that he can now live his passion for new school in an Olympic discipline. The 2002/3 season was his first World Cup season. He achieved a 15th place in the World Championships in Deer Valley, USA, and two German titles in the spring of 2004. Armin Blochl competed in European Cup Mogul races for Germany and later took part in several Freeski competitions. In 1999 he decided to concentrate on his studies and has worked as a sports teacher for the last two years.
