Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn is more than just a pretty face. The athlete has won four FIS Alpine Ski World Cup championships with three consecutive winnings in 2008, 2009, and 2010, as well as a gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Recently, Vonn made headlines as the oldest female skier to win a medal at the 2017 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup championships.
The 23-year-old Gisela Pulido is the youngest kitesurfing world champion. The Spanish beauty has scored 17 titles including the PKRA (Professional Kiteboard Riders Association) Freestyle World Championship.
Australian Ironwoman Jordan Mercer’s athletic career began at the young age of 16. The professional athlete was one of the youngest athletes to appear in the Nutri-Grain series, an Australian Ironwoman competition.
Pro-surfer Sally Fitzgibbons’ accolades extend beyond the world of water sports. According to her official website, the athlete was supposed to dedicate her talents to the track before deciding to focus wholly on surfing.
Here’s an athlete that surf enthusiasts might recognize. Talented and beautiful, American surfer Carissa Moore has more than 20 championship titles under her belt – including 6 ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) Women’s World Tour titles. The athlete was also named Glamour magazine’s Woman of the Year in 2013 and was also inducted into the Surfer’s Hall of Fame in 2014.
Despite being dubbed Russia’s Queen of the Ocean by Redbull, the athlete first started her competitive sports career as a professional snowboarder. Raskina made the switch to windsurfing in 2015 and has since scored a number of awards for competitions such as the 2014 Windsurfing World Tour.
