The 29-year-old Slovenian phenom Tina Maze has conquered the slopes, and now she is ready to take on pop stars Alicia Keys, Jessie J, and Lady Gaga. Her song “My Way is My Decision” hit Number One on the Slovenian charts, and her YouTube video has over a million hits.
She once unzipped her ski suit in front of the media to prove false rivals' contention that she used aerodynamic “enhancements” in her underclothing. Showing a flair for attention both on the off the slopes, she could be set for stardom.
Maze has a starlet's good looks and a great singing voice. And she is not a bad skier either. In fact, she is extraordinary. Winning a gold in super-G and two silvers in the super-combined and giant slalom at the recent world championships in Schladming, Austria, she then proceeded to break the all-time points record of “Herminator” Maier over the weekend.
Although American skier Lindsay Vonn has taken more of the spotlight than Maze, Vonn's crash at the world championships may pave the way to more attention for Maze. For her part, Maze showed absolute horror and concern for Vonn after the accident.
