Kikkan Randall's Philosophy

A Powerhouse in Pink

She calls herself “Kikkanimal”. Her blonde hair is streaked with pink, and she's got a smile that lights up a room, but don't underestimate this fun-loving young woman. She can ski over 70 miles an hour and does chin-ups wearing a 45 pound weight belt. Her drive has made her one of the top cross country ski racers in the world and the most accomplished in US history.

Kikkan Randall was born on New Year's Eve into a family of skiers. Her uncle and aunt were Olympians in the 1976 and 1980 Winter Games. Her Dad gave her skis for her first birthday, and she claims that she could ski before she could walk. It would seem that her path was neatly laid out for her, making it easy to glide into the life of a professional athlete. In reality, it was the beginning of years of dedication, countless hours of training and maintaining a laser focus on her childhood goal to compete at a world-class level. [+ FULL STORY]
