Personally I believe Aritz Ortega has the behaviour of a true pro for the following reasons: he has won everything by himself. He’s the kind of guy you always want to skate with, a friendly and humble person. A very constant skater, he pursues his objectives until he gets them. He has some really good, sometimes a bit mad and risky, ideas. He always tries to help to improve every situation. He works out 6 days a week to keep his body fit. He takes his job, whatever it is, seriously and this makes it so easy to work with him on anything such as filming. He usually places near the top of any contest he attends to. What can I say? He is a good skater, and a better person.
