Sports: Going for Gold
The aptly named 16-year-old high school sophomore from Steamboat Springs is among the world’s best young snowboarders and has proven it so far this year with four medals—including gold in the halfpipe this month at the Burton European Open in Switzerland. She won another gold at the FIS snowboard world championships in Canada, earned a silver at the United States Grand Prix in Utah, and took home a bronze from Aspen’s Winter X Games.
When she’s not home riding her two horses, Sparky and Bugs, she’s training for a shot at the 2014 Winter Olympics—in Sochi, Russia—where she’d compete for the superpipe title. You can follow her on Twitter here.
