Tiril Sjåstad Christiansen
My name is Tiril Sjåstad Christiansen, but my foreign friends call me T. I grew up skiing in a small ski town called Geilo. I had my first ski experience when I was 1,5 years old, and I’ve been skiing ever since. I have a horse and two dogs, and I couldn’t live without them. Family is a big part of me and I try to spend as much time with them as possible. I live with my brother in Lillehammer, where I also go to a sports gymnasium. Whenever I have time, I hang out with my friends. My grandpa used to be a professional alpine skier. So did my sister. My brother is a professional biathloner and our goal is to compete in the Olympics in Sochi 2014 together.
