The Woes Of An Australian Skier

According to CNN.com, "When the snow melts, when fields of white turn luscious green leaving no remnants of winter behind, Harry Laidlaw will leave Europe and return to Australia... But financial constraints mean that after spending the last seven months flying down colossal mountains, the Alpine skier must head home, to..." Australia. Laidlaw told the press, "It's not easy... Australia doesn't have as many skiers because they quit quite early because we're so far away from home and have to live in Europe for seven months of the year. It's an expensive sport so when there's no support from the federation it's hard to make it work... When I'm home I'm working and trying to make as much money as I can to go towards my skiing. It's purely trying to make enough money to break even by the end."
