    Norwegian alpine ski champ, Aksel Lund Svindal is a force to be reckoned with. You can find Aksel (if you’re alert enough) flying down some the world’s quickest hills at the most insane speeds imaginable. He is a four-time World Champion, an Olympic gold medalist, a two-time overall World Cup Champion and an outright beast on skis.

He’s remained there throughout his remarkably successful career, finishing in the top four in World Cup rankings every year since 2006.
