Bleiler and Leskinen Nominated for Teen Choice Award
Gretchen Bleiler and Kristi Leskinen have been nominated alongside snowboarder Hannah Teter, surfer Lisa Andersen and wakeboarder Dallas Friday for “Choice Action Sports Female.” Both Gretchen and Kristi won top awards in their respective categories at last year’s inaugural Action Sports Awards, but this is the first time either has been nominated for a Teen Choice Award.
“There’s no audience more important to the action sports world than teens,” said Gretchen Bleiler. “They are some of our biggest, most knowledgeable fans so it’s a huge honor to be nominated for their award.”
“I have always thought the most rewarding part of being a professional athlete was the ability to have a positive influence on kids,” said Kristi Leskinen. “It’s very important to me and I am thrilled to be nominated for the Teen Choice Awards!”
