Horizon Charter Schools student Samantha Kingshill recently won a silver medal in the Junior Women category at the 2016 UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Championships in Val di Sole, Italy. The course is known for being incredibly steep and rough and filled with massive rocks and roots. Samantha was the only American female athlete at the podium! Good Job Samantha!
Samantha isn’t new to the spotlight. Last year she was recognized as MountainBike Mania TV’s Athlete of the Week for being one of the youngest riders on the circuit. See clips of Samantha in action and view the full interview at Watch on YouTube.
