Winter Vinecki

Marathon Runner, Triathlete, Aerial Skier, Obstacle Course Racer, and Founder of Team Winter

Winter Vinecki is only 17  years old and an extremely accomplished athlete and competitor. Winter began racing triathlons at the age of five and completed her first Olympic distance triathlon at only nine years old. She went on to become a two-time national IronKids Champion and Junior Spartan Race Champion. Recently, Winter became the World Record Holder as the youngest person to run a marathon on every continent and the youngest person to run 26.2 miles on Antarctica.

In addition to triathlon and marathon accomplishments, Winter is a highly competitive Freestyle aerial skier. After meeting an Olympic aerial skier at an event in 2011, Winter was convinced to try out for the Fly Elite Freestyle Aerials team in Park City, Utah. At the end of a week-long camp, Fly Elite decided to sponsor Winter as a 2018 Olympic hopeful in Aerials Freestyle.

After losing her father at the age of 9 to an aggressive form of Prostate Cancer, Winter formed teamwinter.org, a non-profit to raise money for Prostate Cancer research and awareness. She’s raised over $400,000 toward that effort, and counting. Each first place trophy Winter receives is sent to a person affected by Prostate Cancer as a means of support and a gesture of goodwill.

Winter currently resides in Park City where she is a member of the Fly Elite Freestyle Aerials team, and has her sights set on the 2018 Winter Olympics. While maintaining nearly all A’s in Stanford University’s online high school program, EPGY, Winter travels frequently to races in which she, her three brothers and her mom bring awareness to Prostate Cancer and Team Winter’s mission.
