She carried the Youth Olympic torch through Molde, Norway, during the relay for the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway. (panorama.himolde.no, 19 Jan 2016)
Impairment
She has a condition called incubator blindness, typically caused by too much oxygen in incubators used to save the lives of premature babies. She has around 6% vision. "I do fine in everyday life, and use either a cane or a dog. If it is dark, I struggle quite a lot since colours and contrasts disappear, and that's mainly what I use to orientate myself." (skiforbundet.no, 17 Nov 2013; skiforbundet.no, 22 Mar 2011)
