20 Hot photos of USA Olympic freeskier Grete Eliassen

Grete Eliassen was born on September 19, 1986, in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. Grete Eliassen's father is Norwegian and her mother is American. Grete started skiing when she was just two, and at the age of five her family moved to Norway.

The Eliasson family returned back to the United States after one year, and Grete Eliassen started playing hockey, soccer, basketball, tennis, and baseball, in addition to skiing. When Grete was 13, the family moved back to Norway.

Grete Eliassen kept skiing in Norway, and she she started racing and winning races, becoming the Norwegian slalom National Champion. Grete joined the Norwegian Ski Team and won the Super G competion at the Junior Worlds in France.

A few years later, though, Grete Eliassen switched from alpine skiing to freeskiing, and she set the freeskiing world on fire. Grete Eliassen has won the US Open four times, and has captured numerous medals at the Winter X Games, including two gold medals at Aspen.

In 2010, Grete Eliassen made history when she soared 31 feet in the air and set the World Record for the highest hip air by a woman. Grete reached speeds of 60 miles an hour as she hit the 30 foot tall hip and set the world record. I've been skiing my whole life and love to grab air, but 31 feet is insanely high.

Sponsored by Red Bull, Grete Eliassen, freeskiing for the United States, hopes to medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Grete suffered a knee injury in 2012, but she has started skiing again, and hopes to be in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Hope you enjoy the photos in the slideshow, and watch for Grete Eliassen in the freeskiing competitions at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Anybody who can grab 31 feet of air on skis is worth watching, plus Grete is an incredibly hot woman.
