WOMENS A2 NATIONAL RECORD HOLDER, 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"
Elisha Nelson is on a mission. After breaking National Slalom, Trick and Jump Adaptive (A2) records in 2018 and 2019, she is poised to break the world women’s adaptive slalom record. Her goal: 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.
