But this is only one side of the coin because Nils also has his super energry party side too! Nils Loves to smash bottles. I have never seen Nils angry (like for real). Nils is really funny at the most perfect moments. Especially when he is speaking Polish. On his skates, he has the confidence and precision of a 25-year seasoned veteran!

These same traits are seen off the skates as well. Throw Nils into an awkward situation, in a strange new country anywhere in the world, and watch him excel And then sit back and watch yourself excel too because it’s impossible to resist the influence of such a strong positive energy. Basically, Nils is contagious. To sum Nils up into one letter is easy. Nils Is a “G” but he’s not the traditional gangster “G”. He’s a “G” as in Gypsy!
