Have you heard of 2009‘s hit movie Take Off!
The movie is widely known by Koreans, but did you know that it was based on an actual person?
Winner of the Bronze medal in Men's Freestyle Skiing and, together with Kim Yuna, presenter for Korea's bid to host the 2018 Winter Games, Toby Dawson!
After announcing his retirement from skiing, Toby is currently the head coach of Korea's National Freestyle Ski Team citing a desire to teach other Olympic hopefuls back in his homeland.
Under the surface of his impressive reputation as a skiing sensation is a remarkably dramatic story of failure and triumph that is both heartfelt and inspiring.
On 'the INNERview', Toby Dawson's amazing story as a 3 year old losing his parents in South Korea, to his triumphant story as a world-class American skier, including his memorable presentation, alongside Kim Yuna, in front of the International Olympic Committee. Toby shares his amazing experiences with us and, as head coach, states what he hopes to accomplish for Korea's National Freestyle Ski Team.
