AST Athlete Journal: Jesse Kertesz-Knight

Hey everyone,

My name is Jesse Kertesz-Knight, I am 19 years old, and this is my second season with the Alberta Ski Team. I am checking in this week from our home base at Nakiska as we begin to ramp up our season. I am super excited to be starting out the year as we have a brand-new squad this season who are all skiing very well.

After a long and very beneficial block of training overseas, we are beginning training again at home this week with some GS alongside the Canadian Men’s Speed Team. Soon the boys and I will be heading off to Panorama for some more preseason training before the races begin.

This start to the year has been amazing for me so far thanks to the great teammates and coaches I have pushing me every day to become better. I also want to say a huge thanks to our team sponsors Raymond James Mission Wealth Advisors, GMC Dealers of Alberta, Sporting Life, Karbon, and World Cup Supply for their support this season, and to all the people who have helped me reach my goals so far, your support means everything.

Hope you all have a great start to the season and thanks for reading!!
