French snowboarder Julia Pereira de Sousa Mabileau in the 2018 Olympic Winter Games
Olympic GamesOlympic athletes prepare for many years and may take part in many Olympic Games prior to attaining their fantasies, standing on that podium, holding a trophy for the game and state they love. Some do not even get to this, but French snowboarder Julia Pereira de Sousa Mabileau attained all that at only sixteen. Pereira de Sousa Mabileau just completed her first full World Cup season, where she participates in snowboard cross, a downhill snowboard race, also famous for having some fairly epic collisions. Her aim was to make it into the snowboard cross finals. With a few wonderful first races, that is where she finished up, competing against athletes double her age, such as Western Lindsey Jacobellis, who took fourth. My aim was to create the last. Evidently, placing in the Olympics is enormous, but at just 16? On Twitter, it was pointed out by making her silver trophy, Julia Pereira de Sousa Mabileau became the youngest French Winter Olympic medalist ever. The 2018 Olympic Winter Games are serious business, and about the program, Pereira was but severe. Away of it, however, she took the time to become a sixteen-year-old, posing for a photograph for Instagram with all the Winter Olympic mascot. On the slopes she performed to the camera, shooting another picture before going down to warm-ups. After creating such a buzz on societal websites across Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, it would be simple for each the winter’s victory to visit Pereira de Sousa Mabileau’s mind, but she remained focused after the Olympic Games, prepared to complete her first ever World Cup circuit. Snowboard cross has both team and individual events, and separately, Pereira de Sousa Mabileau did not make the podium in the forefront in Switzerland. However, with her nineteen-year-old spouse Manon Petit-Lenoir, both women took second overall for the group event.
