Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began skiing at age seven in the United States of America.
Why this sport?
"In 2005 I got in touch with the Dutch Paralympic ski team because I wanted to learn how to ski better on one leg. But then I got caught by the fun of skiing fast and competition. Skiing is a complex and challenging sport. It is physical, mental, technical, and tactically demanding. And it's outdoors and at high speed."
