Georgia Simmerling won't sit still.
She's the perfect combination of unbridled energy and unparalleled athleticism.
Simmerling made her Olympic debut in Alpine Skiing at Vancouver 2010 before switching over to compete in Ski Cross, finishing just off the podium in fifth place in Sochi 2014.
But after breaking her wrist at the FIS World Championships in 2015, she decided to start her Summer Olympic journey in the Team Pursuit event.
In Rio 2016, she made history by becoming the first Canadian athlete to compete in a different sport in three different Olympic Games winning her first Olympic medal in Team Pursuit.
Immediately after the Games, she reset her focus on Ski Cross and qualifying for Pyeongchang 2018.
As Canada's only active Summer and Winter Olympian, she'll look to add to her impressive resume and get back to the Olympic podium less than two years after her bronze medal performance in Rio.
