Heidi Jo, paralympic athlete!

If you didn't know that our small,but mighty, Heidi (mighty-Heidi...has a nice ring to it...) was not only a bass ass kayaker, but also an olympic snowboarder....well, you are behind. Check her out:

Heidi Jo Duce

She'll be on Gore ASAP when she gets back from Sochi, you can be sure of it!

Here's Heidi's event:

Women's Para Snowboard Cross - Standing - Alpine Skiing - Sochi 2014 Paralympic winter Games

She and one of her teammates are tied for 2nd in THE WORLD for this event, so she stands a great chance to podium! Be sure to check it out if you have access to TV/internet!

Our little ol' Heidi Jo got 5th!! Totally amazing - she only recently started competing and has already made it to the US paralympic team - unbelievable! Whether you get 1st, 3rd, 5th or disqualified, as far as I'm concerned, if you made it to the Olympics, you WON!! As Heidi (and Charlie Sheen) likes to say..." WINNING!"

Heidi is the real deal! Got on a United Flight going to Costa Rica back in Feb and the safety video showed United supporting athletes going to Sochi and there was Heidi on screen! She's worldwide bitches! And the nicest person in person.
