Allison Baver is one of the most decorated women's speed skaters in American history. The 2010 Games will mark her third Olympic appearance.
Baver has not yet earned an Olympic medal, which she is hoping to change in Vancouver.
During her career Allison has overcome several substantial injuries, but she has never given up on her dream of winning Olympic gold.
In addition to her skills on the ice, Allison is blessed with incredible beauty. She has worked extensively as a model and may further pursue a career in modeling once her speed skating days are over.
Allison provides us with a lot to root for at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Hers is a story of hard work, dedication, and the refusal to give up in the face of adversity, all tied up into one pretty little package.
