2 Truths & 1 Lie

I was at a business summit meeting in Munich, Germany earlier this month, and as an ice-breaker, each of us was asked to tell two truths and one lie about ourselves, then everyone would guess which one was the lie. Here is mine. See if you can guess which one of these is not true:

1. While traveling in Spain with my family, thieves slashed open our tent with a machete, knocked us out with sleeping gas, and stole my grandma's dirty laundry.
2. My Mom has met Prince Charles.
3. I once competed in a junior regional ski competition in Germany and came in 3rd.
