CARACAS - Venezuelan skier Adrian Solano may be the butt of the world's jokes after a string of slips and falls during the Lahti Nordic World Ski Championships last week, but the 22-year-old cook, who had never seen snow and practiced the sport on wheels, is delighted with his "marvelous adventure".

Following the example of hapless British ski jumper Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards and the Jamaican bobsleigh team, immortalized in the film Cool Runnings, Solano's mishaps in Finland went viral, earning him the title of "world's worst skier."

Video shows Solano immediately losing his balance when coming out of the gate and repeatedly tripping over his skis. But he is proud of his performance.
