Sport: Tongan skier sets sights on Winter Olympics

From , 6:00 am on 2 November 2016

Tongan skier Kasete Skeen has quit his job, moved to Austria and set his sights on qualifying for the Winter Olympics.

The 34 year old was born and raised in London but his father's family is from Vava'u and Tongatapu.

He told Vinnie Wylie that the idea of competing at the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, has developed over the last year and quickly snowballed from a pipe dream to a serious target.
