The 2 times Olympic medalist Hilde G. Pedersen from Norway has decided to participate in the Summer Ski Sprint in China in May. Hilde is a legend in Norway with an impressing history in her still ongoing ski-career. Hilde is 43 years old and still an active elite-skier, she won her seventh Norwegian Championships gold medal earlier this year in January. Another feat is when she in the age of 41 won the World Cup race in Otepää, Estonia. With that achievement she became the oldest women ever winning a World Cup race.
Hilde has two 19 year old twin-daughters that also will take part in Summer Ski Sprint in China. In 2006 the three ladies from the Gjermundshaug Pedersen family formed the winning team in ski relay 3 x 5 K in the Norwegian Championships.
