Naomi Edmondson was one of the best freestyle skiers of her generation, but as Hannah Engelkamp found out, a series of injuries forced her into early retirement - but what happened next?
As Part 1 of Hannah Engelkamp's interview revealed, at the peak of her powers, Naomi was up there with the world's best. But she kept on getting hurt. Freeskiing is a dangerous business, and after suffering the misery of missed winter seasons and many long stints of convalescence, Naomi hung up her ski boots for good and hasn't skied again since.
But isn't it heartbreaking to find yourself fighting with nerves, where previously you were fearless? And how do you get over being forced to give up your passion? Thankfully Naomi turned that trademark ambition to the next thing, and it turns out she's winning in her new life too, says Hannah Engelkamp.
