How did Peter Prevc Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on September 20, 1992, in Kranj, Slovenia, Peter Prevc grew up in the village of Dolenja Vas, where he was raised with his four brothers and sisters. Due to the fact that his father worked as an international ski jumping referee, he was introduced to the sport at a young age. After a period of cross-country skiing, he began training in ski jumping at the Bregarca Ski Jumping Hill.
At the age of seventeen, he competed in his first World Cup, where he finished 22nd overall. Despite the dissapointing finish, he eventually managed to win silver at the individual event at the Junior World Championships in January 2010.
Just a month later, he was named to the Slovenian Olympic Team. At the following Winter Olympic Games held in Vancouver, he finished off the podium in both the individual normal hill and large hill events; together with his teammates, he also placed eighth in the team discipline.
Over the next few years, Prevc continued to take part in several competitions such as the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships, and World Cup events. In the 2011-12 season alone, he had four Top 10 finishes.
In 2014, Prevc represented Slovenia for the second time at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Unlike his previous performance in Vancouver, he successfully finished second on the podium at the normal hill event for a silver medal; later, he also won a bronze at the large hill event.
From there, he enjoyed a very successful 2014-15 season. Not only did he win the World Cup three times, but he also had eleven other podium finishes. At the Four Hills Tournament, he also managed to win a bronze medal.
From then until now, he has continued to take part in the World Cup on a regular basis, though he hasn’t managed to replicate his earlier success. With that said, he did win a gold medal at the Ski Flying World Championships in 2016. More recently this year, he also brought home a silver in the team event at the 2018 Ski Flying World Championships in Oberstdrof.
