    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 blows through gates with precision and power, while blazing down the mountain in lightning fast times. Born to a ski family, Svindal quickly refined his craft and rose to the top of the sport. He’s remained there throughout his remarkably successful career, finishing in the top four in World Cup rankings every year since 2006.
