I recently had the chance to speak with Sarah Burke about her skiing history, hopes for the upcoming Winter X Games and skiing's potential inclusion in the 2014 Winter Olympics, among other things.
Burke was the first competitive female freestyle skier and has been a true pioneer in the sport. She was the first skier to ever win an ESPY and has been nominated for Female Action Sports Athlete of the Year twice.
The high-flyer has also three-peated at the X Games, winning gold in the half pipe from 2007-2009. She is also the first woman to have landed a 720, 900 and 1080 on skis.
Below is the full transcript of the interview with this wonderful person. If you're curious, I know she's a wonderful person because she skipped the ESPY ceremony last year to participate in the Goodwill Tour in the Middle East.
