In a field crowded with young freespirited high-flying half pipe skiers, American freestyle skier David Wise has stood out for some time now. Not because he is one of the best, but because of his wife and kid. Even though he took home a gold medal in the SoChi Winter Olympics last night, what impressed most was the mature 23 year-olds outlook on life and fatherhood. Wise is husband and father of a 2 year old, Nayeli, who’s face could be seen on a pop out sign held by his wife cheering him on.
‘‘I can go and ski my heart out, but that doesn’t necessarily define who I am,’’ he said. ‘‘Being a good husband and father is more important. I can have passion with both things and it provides balance.’’
Multi-tasking taking care of business on the slopes and at home, David Wise has medalled in life. Lame … maybe … but DadsRULE!
