Raimonds Dombovskis

Raimonds Dombovskis is a world-famous professional athlete born in Riga, in what was then Soviet Latvia. As teenager, his family had to emigrate to the U.S., where Raimonds restarted his biathlon trainings. With hard work and dedication, Raimonds became a seven-time U.S. champion. Unfortunately, a sudden life-threatening health condition forced him out of the competition from the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. Unwilling to give up on his passion and nurturing his dream of competing in the Winter Olympics under the flag of independent Latvia, he recovered and embarked on an epic roller ski journey across North America, from Inuvik in Canada to Baja in Mexico, which became the main theme of Aspers’ documentary A to B Rollerski.
