NBC profiles American Olympic Gold Medalist who leads an “alternative lifestyle” [Darleen Click]
This is what now qualifies as “alternative.”
Headline: David Wise’s alternative lifestyle leads to Olympic gold
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — “Hey, Nayeli,” he said peering into the camera. “Daddy loves you!”
Those were the words of David Wise, the freestyle skiing halfpipe gold medalist Tuesday night after he won his event’s first-ever Olympic medal.
David Wise is at the top of his sport. He’s always smiling among his friends and competitors, however, he’s not like the rest of the field. He is mature.
Not to say the rest of the freestyle skiers of halfpipe are not mature, but Wise is mature far beyond his years. At only twenty-three years old, he has a wife, Alexander (sic – Alexandra), who was waiting patiently in the crowd, and together they have a two-year-old daughter waiting for them to return to their home in Reno, Nevada.
At such a young age, Wise has the lifestyle of an adult. He wears a Baby Bjorn baby carrier around the house. He also attends church regularly and says he could see himself becoming a pastor a little later down the road.
Hmmm… married young, has a child, attends church regularly.
