About the Author
At the Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan, Nikki Stone became America’s first-ever Olympic Champion in the sport of inverted aerial skiing. What made this performance so unbelievable, was the fact that less than two years earlier, a chronic spinal injury prevented her from standing, much less walking or skiing off a 12-foot tall snow jump that launches aerialists 50 feet into the air. This top spot was far from foreign to Nikki, as throughout her career she earned 35 World Cup medals, eleven World Cup titles, four national titles, two yearlong Aerial World Cup titles, and a World Championship title. You may have seen Nikki in one of her televised commercials or in one of her many television appearances on shows like Late Night with David Letterman and the Today Show. In addition to her skiing endeavors, Nikki is also a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Union College in New York and a Suma Cum Laude masters graduate of the University of Utah. Her aerial retirement is less than restful as she works as a personal & professional development coach, trains other Olympic athletes in speaking skills, hosts group skiing adventures, sits on 5 different sports and philanthropic Committees, and authored the highly anticipated book, "When Turtles Fly".Stone now travels around the world working as a sought-after inspirational speaker, sharing her secrets to success. She encourages and inspires her audiences to "Spread their wings."
