When Natalia Berdnikava broke the world trick record awhile back I mentioned I used to ski with her when she first came to the US. I also said that the other skiers in our group and I all said we thought she would break the world jump record but never thought about the trick record. Well she has finally done what we all knew she could.
The way she would just explode off the ramp was crazy, it looked like she was trying to do a long dive. Nat has refined her skiing and become one of the top female skiers our sport has ever seen. She has set Trick and Overall world records and can now add a Jump world record to her stable of accomplishments.
