She won gold at the Vancouver Games, bronze at Sochi, and at times was unbeatable on the World Cup circuit. She won her first World Cup event in 2004 at the age of 17, then went on to collect eight World Cup season titles, including three overall freestyle globes. In 2011-12 she put together a record-setting streak of 16 straight wins.
