Meet Allison Baver The Olympic Speed Skater… You’re Welcome

 FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

Not at all detracting from this Olympic athletes achievements as a speed skater, but we would like to take a moment to recognise her athleticism and fine form. At 34 years of age the American short track speed skater is coming to the end of her career, but it’s been a good one with the inevitable up and down. Perhaps one of the worst downs for Baver will have been her high speed tumble during a race in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2009 where she collided with team mate Katherine Reutter. This tumble resulted in multiple fractures to her leg, however testament to her resolve she managed to recover and compete at the 2010 Winter Olympics, competing in 3 events.

Judging by a recent photo shoot with Muscle and Fitness, Allison Baver brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘figure skating’!
