Like a therapy, an update on my life and my desires… Realizing what is behind me and clarifying the future…
In the book "From Gold to Crystal", co-written with Olivier Villepreux, Alexis Pinturault unravels the threads of time and confesses: "the truth is that I worked a lot to win this big crystal globe".
Throughout the pages, he recounts, amused, his childhood shared between the slopes of Courchevel and the turquoise waters of Lake Annecy. He confides, without detours, his choices of adolescent and man, the meetings which forged his convictions of champion.
He gives himself up without complacency and exposes those moments that could have led him to stop everything. The slices of life pile up.
He discovers a shy and mischievous child, a demanding and discreet man who has always seen sport as a game. He evokes with modesty and strong words his wife, Romane, met on the benches of high school.
“From Gold to Crystal” is a collection of thoughts on a child who became a champion, on an exposed man and spokesperson for his sport. The quest for the World Cup is the common thread.
“Once the big globe in hand, I experienced a moment of inner peace, he explores. I found myself in total osmosis with my life. It was a form of fullness. And this fullness reached, I touched at the end of a cycle, a cycle of life. », explore-t-il. Je me suis retrouvé en osmose totale avec ma vie. C’était une forme de plénitude. Et cette plénitude atteinte, je touchais au bout d’un cycle, un cycle de vie. »
