Snowboarder hit at book launch
14th October 2009
She isn’t just any old snowboarder, she is Leona Lewis. We saw her snowboarding for the first time last winter in Ischgl and obtained some video of her first tentative turns.
She is promoting her autobiography at the moment and was apparently involved in an incident at a bookshop in London.
We thought you might like to know that The X Factor winner from 2006 is a snowboarder as well as an internationally famous singer.
She was hit on the head at a book signing session at Waterstone’s in Central London and said she was “extremely hurt and upset” by the incident.
A man was arrested and has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act. He is due to appear in court later this month,
We saw her perfom in Ischgl last year as she played a concert to open the Austrian resort and we also obtained some vidoe of her snowboarding on real snow for the first time. She had apparently done it once before at the indoor snow dome in Dubai.
She also put on a pretty good concert in the main square last November.
See here for the news stories we wrote at the time and a review of skiing at Ischgl in November.
This year Katy Perry kicks off the season at the Austrian resort with a concert.
