Isabella is a 27 year old German snowboarder who competes in Parallel Slalom and Parallel Giant Slalom. Sochi will be her second Olymmpics. At Vancouver in 2010, Isabella placed 15th in the Parallel Giant Slalom. She was the 2013 FIS World Champion in Parallel Giant Slalom.
She competed in the Parallel Giant Slalom today (the finals are being shown tonight on NBC so I won’t put up a spoiler) and will be in the Parallel Slalom on Saturday.
Playboy Photo shoot
Isabella posed in the March 2013 issue of the German edition of Playboy magazine with German ski jumper Melanie Faisst and German ski cross athlete Sabrina Weilharter. Unfortunately, neither Melanie nor Sabrina made the Olympic team or they’d be Oglympians too.
