Aleisha Cline - Speed Skier

When she was 20, Aleisha Cline gave up traditional alpine skiing and moved into the newly developing sport of speed skiing. In speed skiing, skiers race down incredibly steep slopes, using aerodynamically designed skis. It's the world's fastest non-motorized sport and one of the most dangerous. Aleisha Cline competed in speed skiing at the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France, where speedskiing was a demonstration sport. Cline set a world record at the Olympics by reaching a speed of 135 miles (215 km) per hour! Since then, Aleisha Cline has become one of the world's best all-around skiers. She's won three gold medals in Skier X at the Winter X Games, a gold at the World Freesking Championships and a first place finish at the 24 Hours of Aspen Ski Relay.

Aleisha Cline - 2004 X Games

At the 2004 Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, Aleisha Cline had to settle for a silver medal in the Skier X, after being upset by Karin Huttary, of Austria. "It was a great race with a lot of pushing and shoving at the beginning. You couldn't ask for a better race," said Cline. "I would have liked to have gotten gold, but I can share."

    considering rooney is a man united legend, and has scored the all time number of goals, i think people are being a bit harsh on him at the moment. i watched carrack's testimonial not long ago, and in honesty i couldn't really tell him apart from those who have retired but his heart is in united and he's a class player. maybe it's time for him to step aside for the newer players to start building on united's success, and play less games but the lads on social media calling him out for every second he's not training, or demanding we drop him i think need to calm down. this is a proper legend, and we should respect his commitment to the team. thoughts?
