Lindsey VanLindsey won the gold medal at the World Ski Jumping Championships in February 2009 making history as the first ever women’s world champion. The 27-year-old is a 15-time U.S. national jumping champion (normal and large hills) and has 44 top-three finishes on the Continental Cup, including eight wins. She holds the North American women’s record with a jump of 171 meters, which measures out to more than 560 feet. Before the Olympic Games in 2010, she held the hill record for men and women in Vancouver.

 

If it’s a powder day, Lindsey has been known to ditch the jumps in favor of the powder on a pair of RAMP skis (Shhh!). She also loves to eat hot sauce straight from the bottle, and she’ll never leave home without her pillow even though it's half her size.

 

In 2011, Lindsey learned she was a bone marrow match for someone suffering from Leukemia. Two weeks after the 2011 World Championships in Oslo, Lindsey donated her bone marrow in San Francisco. She says it's one of the most important things she's ever done in her life.
