‘Move to the beat of your heart. What is it that makes your heart beat, makes you feel truly alive?’ Elena Hight
Elena Hight is American Olympic snowboarder and one of winter sport’s most shining stars. Aged just 24, she’s already a 2-time Olympian; Winter X Games Champion and 4-times medalist; and Burton US Open Champion to name just a few. But that shouldn’t be a surprise. Elena set the bar high from a young age. Aged just 13, she became the first female to land a 900 in competition; and, at the 2013 Winter X Games (even more prestigious than the Olympics in winter sports!) in Aspen, she became the first athlete – male or female! - ever to land a double backside alley-oop rodeo during a halfpipe competition and things have gone from strength to strength.
‘Super cool, super sassy, super talented and a lot of fun. We can’t wait to see what she does next.’
