Wikinews reporter LauraHale interviews United States Paralympic skier Jasmin Bambur

Recently, Wikinews spent time with with United States Paralympic skier Jasmin Bambur who was at Copper Mountain, Colorado for the IPC Nor-Am Cup.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWikinewsWikinews waves Right.png We’re interviewing Jasmin Bambur. He is a guy. He’s from Serbia, right?

Jasmin Bambur: Yes, ma’am, I am from Serbia but I race for US Paralympic.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png How did a Serb end up racing for the USA?

Jasmin Bambur: It’s very simple. You just get married to a fine American lady and she give you citizenship and you ski fast and you get on the team. That’s very simple.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Why do the Australians love you so?

Jasmin Bambur: We’re a very small community, as ski racers, and we’re always great friends. So we kind of hang out together and help each other out. And then in the end, depends who wins, either hate them or love them.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png They said you’re some sort of professional racquetball player or something?

Jasmin Bambur: It’s actually team handball. It’s a sport [where] you have seven players like rugby. And yes, I played it professionally until I was 18 in Europe. And when war started in Kosovo, I moved to the United States and that’s how I end up here.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png You weren’t always a sit skier?

Jasmin Bambur: I am a sit skier now but actually the reason I am a sit skier is I had a car accident in 2000. I fell asleep driving. Driving and sleeping don’t go together. I don’t know why.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Yeah, that’s a difficult lesson to learn. So how have you been doing at this event?

Jasmin Bambur: Skiing? I’ve been skiing for about ten years, racing about four. And so far it’s going great.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png You won a medal, at this thing, right? One of these days?

Jasmin Bambur: I won two medals in Super G, two third places, and yesterday I got second place in slalom.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png And what’s your favourite one?

Jasmin Bambur: Favourite is Super G.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Because you go fast?

Jasmin Bambur: Yes, fast and very little turning. So that’s my pick[?].

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Thank you very, very much.

Jasmin Bambur: No problem.

Wikinews reporter LauraHale interviews Australian Paralympic skier Jonty O’Callaghan

Recently, Wikinews spent time with with Australian Paralympic skier Jonty O’Clallaghan who was in Copper Mountain, Colorado for the IPC Nor-Am Cup.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWikinewsWikinews waves Right.png I’m interviewing Jonty O’Callaghan, one of the Australian skiers with the IPC [International Paralympic Committee] Nor-Am Cup, and you’re a fifteen-year-old?

Jonty O’Callaghan: Yup. Yeah, I’ve been skiing since I was about ten and I really enjoy racing.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png I talked to your father, he said you’re kind of thinking Sochi?

Jonty O’Callaghan: It’s the matter of if I qualify by getting enough good races and points.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png How do you balance skiing with doing school?

Jonty O’Callaghan: Over the past few years in Australia I’ve been doing full time in tenth grade in the Australian winter, which means the school at the mountain brings up my work from my home school in Melbourne to do up at the mountain when I’m not skiing.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Since you’re not on the development team, do you get enough support or your parents are supporting this?

Jonty O’Callaghan: Yeah, my parents support me all the way. I’ve never doubted their support always though the journeys and I [thank them] for their support throughout and continuing through my journeys.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png What classification are you?

Jonty O’Callaghan: I am LW9-1.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png What does that mean for people who know nothing about classification?

Jonty O’Callaghan: I basically have a disability on the right side of my body.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Yep.

Jonty O’Callaghan: which weakens two of my limbs and which means I favor my left side a lot more.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Did you have that from birth?

Jonty O’Callaghan: Yeah, it was caused by premature birth.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Do you do any other sports anything other than skiing or are you one of those Australian ski bunnies?

Jonty O’Callaghan: I’ve done a lot of sports doing my journey, I’ve always played cricket, Australian football, played a little tennis, and I like golf too as a hobby.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Are you going to and be one of those dual Paralympians for Winter and Summer?

Jonty O’Callaghan: No, because I don’t think any other sports I like are in the Summer Olympics. I think I’ll pursue them after I finished my skiing career, because cricket you can do when you’re much older.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Is there anything else people should know about you?

Jonty O’Callaghan: Yeah, I’m just looking forward to the future and hoping for the best and maybe some medals.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Okay cool, thank you very much.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWikinewsWikinews waves Right.png I’m interviewing Lincoln Budge, one of Australia’s development team skiers, who is here at the IPC [International Paralympic Committee] Nor-Am Cup and you’re not skiing today?

Lincoln Budge: Well I skied first run.

Lincoln Budge: DNF, so nothing else for the rest of the afternoon now.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png So how have you preformed in the past days?

Lincoln Budge: I’ve done pretty well in the previous days. I’ve finished every race till now which has been good, I’ve improved my points on what I’ve had previously, so I’m progressing slowly and, yeah, it’s good.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png What classification are you?

Lincoln Budge: LW11.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Are you shooting for Sochi or are you just kind of developing now with the idea of the next one [Winter Paralympics] in 2018?

Lincoln Budge: I’d like to go to Sochi, but realistically it’s probably not going to happen, I’ve only been skiing for three years, so. Yeah.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png And you’re from some town that’s really hard to pronounce in Australia.

Lincoln Budge: Yes, Yackandandah.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png What state is this in?

Lincoln Budge: Victoria, north east Victoria

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png So Victoria is the state that produces all the great Australian skiers?

Lincoln Budge: Correct, Victoria is the state to be in.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png How long have you been in the development team?

Lincoln Budge: Been skiing for almost three years now.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png On the development team or just period?

Lincoln Budge: Period but I pretty much got onto the development team […] days in[?], so all my skiing has been with the team.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png You never considered doing the nordic skiing?

Lincoln Budge: No way. [laughs] That’s way too much dedication.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Where do you like to ski and which, like Super G, Slalom, is your favourite?

Lincoln Budge: Down hill would be the one I’ve enjoyed most so far. It’s fast, obviously, a speed event, and the whole build-up to it, ‘s really fun and I enjoy the speed events.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Where do you like to ski? Are you one of these people likes to come to the US, or do you think Victoria’s got the best ski fields in the world?

Lincoln Budge: US is pretty good, I’ve sort of skied quite a few hills. I’ve based somewhere different each year so far. […] I don’t really have a preferred one.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Considering how expensive skiing is, do you think you’re getting adequate support from everyone to enable you to continue your ski career?

Lincoln Budge: Yeah, at the moment I’m getting good support from the team and everyone, which is really good and hopefully financially I can keep doing it into the future.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png As someone watching skiing: can you throw your monoski over your shoulder and transport it that way?

Lincoln Budge: I can if I want to but I’ve got a set of wheels that I clip the rig into so I can push it around more easily than putting it on me shoulder. I cart skis[?] around on my shoulder, but I’ve got a set of wheels, just to make it easier.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Ok, thank you very very much.

LW2 classified standing skier Rahles-Raubula had 52.76 and similarly classified skier Toby Kane had 26.61 points. Standing LW6/8-2 classified skier Mitchell Gourley had 3.24 points.
