Loudoun County, Va. native Ashley Caldwell, a two-time Olympian with the U.S. Skiing squad and lifelong Redskins fan, finished an impressive second place in the Freestyle Ski World Cup, which just finished on Sunday.
Caldwell won two of the seven freestyle competitions that took place (everywhere from Beijing to Minsk) over the last three months, finishing just below fellow American Kiley McKinnon.
Still, Caldwell went out with a bang, winning first place yesterday as the only lady landing triple jumps in the competition, especially impressive considering she had only completed one day of training.
“We only jumped one day here before the contest day today, and I hadn’t done any triples at all, so I was kind of nervous,” said Caldwell of her performance. “I went up and the first jump I did was nasty. But then the rest of the day I was just ripping into jumps and going big.”
If you want to see her aerial skills, take a look at the video below.
Caldwell has sported her high-flying skis with Redskins logos from time to time. She’s also competed in a few of the NFL’s Punt, Pass, and Kick competitions multiple times at FedExField.
Congrats, Ashley. Keep representing the burgundy and gold!
