Kasete Naufahu Skeen’s dream of becoming the first Tongan alpine skier in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang is now his goal, after he recently quit his full time job to focus solely on skiing. He has launched a crowdfunding campaign to cover his training and estimates his Olympic campaign will cost at least £50,000.
