Olympic skier Fabian Bösch loves a bit of Parkour

The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games are underway, and as the athletes ski and skate their way to victory, you might be asking yourself: what does an Olympic athlete do on their day off?

Over the next two weeks, some of the world's best athletes will be competing for medals and glory at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

The impressive display of skills in sports such as skiing, ice skating, bobsleighing, and the enigmatic curling will keep viewers glued to their TV sets almost as much as the dazzling costumes and the rousing commentary. 

But all athletes take breaks during the tournament, and if you think that they would use the opportunity to catch up on some much-needed rest, that is only because you have not met Swiss skier Fabian Bösch.

On a trip to the shopping centre, the athlete found a way to entertain himself while also getting a little bit of strength training in. Watch how Fabian manages this in the video below. 

The confidence with which he approached the escalator suggests that Fabian has done something like this before. But how did he know that he would be able to hold on all the way to the top?

This is not the only outlandish thing that Fabian has done during his time in PyeongChang. Can you guess how he managed to get up on these rings for a picture?

It's clear that Fabian will be a shoo-in if any sport that is a combination of skiing and Parkour is created!
