Meet the Women’s Snowboard competitors Torah Bright, Silje Norendal and Isabel Derungs


Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle is enjoying it’s first year of Olympic activity but looking at the contestants we wish this event had been around longer.

USA hopeful Jamie Anderson is one of many women hoping for a Gold Medal in Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle but there are others that will surely have interest from the viewers at home. Below we take a look at a few of the favorites.

Torah Bright

Bright, 27, of Australia is pretty good at this Olympic thing. In 2010 Bright won Gold in the Women’s Halfpipe in Vancouver. She has been around in the Olympics since 2006.

In Sochi, Bright will attempt to compete in three snowboarding events: halfpipe, slopestyle and boardercross. She now lives in SaltLake City, Utah.

Silje Norendal

Norendal, 20, jumped onto the radar a few weeks ago after winning Gold in the X Games from Aspen. Now the Norwegian born snowboarder is hoping to find a medal in Sochi as she competes in the Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle even.

She’s not guaranteed to make it to the finals so her work is cut out for her.

Isabel Derungs

Isabel Derungs, 26, of Swizerland is also hoping to win a medal in slopestyle. Her resume is not as impressive as some in the field but she’s doing some of her best boarding right now.

She qualified first and will appear in the finals.
