Training and nutrition tips with US snowboarder Arielle Gold

06/02/2014

With a name like Arielle Gold there really was only one destiny for this 17-year-old snowboarder from the US.

After wowing the crowds at the first Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck in 2012 with her gravity-defying tricks in the half-pipe and in slopestyle, which saw her claim silver medals in both events, Arielle’s career has gone from strength to strength.
