The Greatness of Regina

lhooverlhoover Posts: 165 Baller
Just saw a nice thread talking of the dominance and greatness of Nate Smith. And that is very true. But folks, we are watching, and have watched for over a decade, the greatest 3 event female in the history of our sport. And the greatest female slalom skier ever, period, end of sentence.

She just won for the 4th yr in a row the Swiss Pro Tourney by an astounding 5 buoys. The only female to run the 39off pass the entire weekend....and she did it 3 times. And lest we forget, this is a former Tricks World Champion!

Just amazing, so enjoy the run with her and congratulations to Regina, the best ever.

    There is a reason the 1/4 video of Regina has over 377,000 views. I did a quick search and haven't seen another video with more views.

    Just how many 34 mph men run 39 as consistently in tournaments as Regina?

    She deserves a more appealing moniker than "GOAT". How about we come up with a new one?
    Is it time to ski, yet?

    @dchristman Tom Brady is the GOAT...I think in this case it is appropriate to call Regina the BOAT.

    As a 34 mph skier I've never understood why people don't look more closely at her skiing style. Quiet power with minimal movement. Regina is a whopping 5' 4" and she gets it done big time.

    Several years ago I participated in a charity type tournament that had locals (me) and also pros (like Regina). Very nice person. Her core looked to be incredibly strong. I went off the dock right after her......................

    @lakeaustinskier mentioned it above, but think about all the times we talk about TW being short(-er) or Chris Parrish being tall and what a huge disadvantage/advantage we imagine that represents.

    At 5'4", Regina is unstoppable.

    I watched her run a 18-20mph tailwind 39 straight down the lake, in my neighborhood a few years back. I was completely amazed
