Joss Christensen skis remains of Sarajevo 1984 Winter Olympics sites (video)

Joss Christensen

After winning Sochi Olympic ski slopstyle gold, Joss Christensen wanted to travel somewhere his sport couldn’t take him.

A month later, Christensen was in Sarajevo, host of the 1984 Olympic Winter Games, which took place seven years before he was born and eight years before the Bosnian War broke out and changed the city forever.

Christensen skied the former venues of the Olympics from 30 years ago (and also needed rabies shots after a dog bit his ankle (picture here)) with Karl Fostvedt and Chris Laker.

The scenes were part of of the film “Almost Ablaze.”
