Olympic Outlook: Silje is another reason why the Norwegian team is looking so strong heading into Sochi. She won the 2013 X Games at Tignes with tricks like a Cab 720 and frontside rodeo 720, making her one of the few women doing two sevens in their runs. Fresh off a win at the 2014 X Games, if Silje can put down a similar run at Sochi she’ll be a medal contender.
Potential Downfall: Silje doesn’t have as much contest experience as some of the older competitors and it remains to be seen how she’ll handle the pressure at Sochi.
