If I had a big corporate sponsor I wouldn’t be searching, and if I didn’t think it was the right thing to do I also wouldn’t be asking.
This is my grassroots campaign at crowdfunding.
Hello, I’m Sarah from Vail and I was born to Ski Race.
My long Olympic story short;
February 19, 1998 Nagano Japan. It was my golden birthday. I raced my second Olympic event, the slalom, didn’t get the gold.
2002 Salt Lake City Utah. Had another birthday, pre-released in the slalom. Didn’t get the gold.
2006 Torino Italy. Stopped counting birthdays. Julia got the Gold (GS).
Had a baby, he turned 2.
2010 Vancouver BC Canada My best performance in Olympic Games: slalom, 10th.
2015 I am now a Mexican citizen. I am the wife of a Mexican and the mother of two.
World Alpine Ski Championships in Vail CO 50th in the GS
2017 Competed in all 5 disciplines at the World Alpine Ski Championships in St. Mortiz Switzerland (41st in the GS)
Track record is good. I have some results.
In June at my favorite summer skiing in the world I tore my ACL,
But I had the thought… I might still get the Gold.
December 6th 2017 I passed my return to snow sports test. I skied on December 8th.
The numbers next to the years are just that, the numbers, same as the year, same as my age, what matters is what you do while your there. Do you manifest results, relationships, smiles from fans, adrenaline, overcoming race nerves and fears, strength, grace, humility, pride, heart? Olympic Spirit, sharing the stage with the world, connecting the world. Sport has always been about competition, but the Olympics are about union! The joining of nations. This is what participation on the Winter Sports ‘Olympic’ Stage for a 5th time means to me. If I am competing for Mexico or competing for the US it’s still the same standard, about holding up a candle with the rest and giving it my best.
Today: January 8, 2018, 32 days to go. 32 days; please support me; a mother, wife, skier, Olympic Dreamer.
It’s length of my career. Throw the old dog a bone. Roof Roooooaaaaaaaaar. Rooooof.
The Olympics are less than two months away.
What can I ask of you?
$5.00 because five dollars from a thousand is $5,000. If my story inspires A THOUSAND. I’m in, all in.
