ELISHA NELSON

WOMENS A2 WORLD RECORD HOLDER, 2020 & 2021 ADAPTIVE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

"IT’S NOT HOW HOW MANY TIMES YOU GET KNOCKED DOWN, BUT HOW MANY TIMES YOU GET BACK UP"

California's Elisha Nelson had a stellar 2021 season. She broke the A2 World Slalom record that had stood for 21 years, set national trick and jump records, and was named 2021 Adaptive Athlete of the Year & 2021 Pan American Female Athlete of the Year. It doesn't stop there for Elisha. Her goal is to be the first womens Adaptive skier to ever run into shortlines and to compete with the W3 able bodied field. Working with Bob LaPoint and the Syndicate Team, that world record goal is no longer just possible, it’s probable. Born without a right arm, Elisha had learned from a young age to work harder than others to complete simple tasks they took for granted. Her strength and resilience has lent way to Elisha proving that anything is possible.
