16 year old Birgit Rofner will compete at the snowboard slopestyle discipline at the first youth olympic games in Innsbruck mid of January 2012.
As an Innsbrooklyn local she's more than happy to get the chance to fight for olympic gold. Birgit said that she already gets nervous if she's thinking about the comp but is confident enough to perform best.
The first olympic games for teens between 14 and 18 will take place from January, 13 to 22. The Snowboard slopestyle qualification will be on January, 19 and the finals are on the 20th.
