Women Fitness President Ms. Namita Nayyar catches up with Torah Bright: Australian professional snowboarder, Olympic gold and silver medalist, who talks about her workout, diet, beauty secrets and success story.
You are Australia’s most successful Winter Olympian, former Olympic gold and silver medalist, two time X Games gold medalist, two times US Open winner, recipient of the Best Female Action Sports Athlete at the ESPY awards and much more. What attracted you towards snowboarding as a sport, if you were to sum up in a few words?
I grew up skiing. Skiing was all about racing and regimented training. When I was 11 I followed my older brother when he tried snowboarding for the first time.
Our minds were blown. We viewed the mountain differently; the creative outlet the snowboard under out feel gave us. All of a sudden we were seeing the same mountain as a playground. Snowboarding still is a creative outlet and a source of freedom and adventure for us.
