It's Time To Look For Inspiration!. Antimedia: Blink of an Eye. Aksel Lund Svindal

Downhill ski racing is one of the most demanding sports in the world, both physically and mentally. Blink of an eye is a short film documenting Aksel as one of the few athletes who combines an extraordinary level of focus with brutal physical strength to perform among the international elite. Aksel's remarkable comeback from his Beaver Creek crash in 2007 is a true testament to his superior mental strength. In fact, his focus is so strong that he does not blink once during a 2 minute run...
Regular TV-broadcasted downhill races do not reflect the actual speeds nor the unbelievable forces which alpine downhill athletes endure. More importantly, it is impossible for the TV viewer to grasp the fear and mental pressure these athletes expose themselves to. Blink of an eye is attempt to show how raw downhill skiing really is.
