Lisa Zimmerman has accomplished a lot in a little bit of time.  Growing up figure skating, Zimmeran just recently picked up freesking.  In 2010, she followed her father and brother to a regional slopestyle contest, where she decided to enter last second for fun, turns out she won. Within the next year, she gave up figure skating all together to pursue her freesking dreams.  Although Germany only has a small freesking community, Zimmerman has been able to travel the world and represent Germany in contests everywhere from Austria to New Zealand.

It’s hard to believe she’s only been skiing for a few short years, considering Zimmerman was the first female to land a double-cork 1260 in competition, and is still one of only a handful of women that can do the trick.

On top of all of her skiing success Zimmerman has been able to balance her academic studies, even when it has meant putting school before contests.

Zimmerman represented Germany at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. She placed 14th.
