Ross Anderson sets goals higher than ever for 2008 season
Speed skiing is widely considered one of the most extreme and most dangerous sports on the planet. It is second only to skydiving as the fastest non-motorized sport. He broke that All-American record in 2006 with a speed of 154.06 mph as he screamed down the hill in Les Arcs, France earning him the 9th all time fastest speed in recorded history.
He broke more than the All-American record that day. He also made history in the books to be the first person of color in an Alpine sport to hold a title record. Ross is a Native American from the Mescalero Apache and Cheyenne/Arapaho Tribes.
“I have a personal dream of becoming fastest in the world. I intend on attaining that dream with my eyes wide open.” Ross Anderson said, “I will continue to make a name for myself and to become a role model for Native American youth across this country. I set out early in my career trying to be the fastest Native American on Mother Earth, and becoming the All-American record holder proves dreams can become reality.”
