Meet Tristan (@tristanluge). This Alberta boy is a 2018 Canadian Olympic silver medalist (luge!) and #swimsuitmodel.
Why did you choose this career path?
I fell in love with a hobby I started at 10 years old.
How would you describe yourself?
I’m an adrenaline junkie.
What are three words your best friend would use to describe you?
Smart, confident, and goofball.
How do you hope to connect with and inspire your followers?
I hope to inspire people to take risks and step outside their comfort zones.
We selected you for this campaign because we believe your life is aspirational. What do you feel makes your life aspirational?
My dedication to big goals.
Why did you decided to participate in this campaign?
This campaign is an opportunity to share my story and inspire people to make healthy life choices.
What does being a #swimsuitmodel mean to you?
Not taking yourself too seriously!
What makes a body beautiful?
Pride in the work you’ve put into it.
Can you describe your self-confidence journey?
As an athlete my body is a tool for me to do my job. That means my self-confidence journey has always been more about performance than image. In a sport that’s timed to the thousandth of a second, having the confidence that I’ve done everything I can to be the best I can be can means the difference between 4th place and an Olympic medal.
If you could say one thing to someone who may not be confident with their body, what would it be
Set goals. Start small and knock them down one at a time.
