About Emma Louise Lonsdale

After competing in Alpine for 16 years she switched to Freestyle Skiing, where she tried out various different disciplines including moguls, aerials and a skicross before deciding that halfpipe was the sport for her.
Sochi 2014 will mark her Winter Olympic debut.
Emma has worked as a lifeguard at Settle Area Swimming Pool and as part of the bar staff at a pub in Settle, England. (Facebook profile, 03 Jan 2014)
