It was amazing to meet Grete Eliassen at the Red Bull North American Headquarters in Santa Monica. Grete is an American-Norwegian freestyle skier, who is a 6-time Winter X Games Freeskier medalist! She also set the Guinness World record for Women’s Hip Jump. No wonder! She started skiing at the age of two!
I was so impressed to hear how she pushed herself to the limit during a two-week Red Bull High Performance project in Australia. Be sure to stay tuned, when it’s a reality TV show. Can you imagine holding your breath for four minutes? Hiking all day in 100+ degrees? Jumping out of a plane?
Fun facts: Grete’s favorite food is Mozzarella cheese, and her favorite physical activity is skiing in fresh powder (might of guessed that one.)
Way to go Grete!! It takes a lot of hard work and determination to be a world champion.
