Elizabeth Swaney is an American skiier who qualified for the halfpipe event at Pyongchang by basically backing into a spot. She essentially got in by showing up to World Cup events and just being there. She got her Olympic moment this week with this run. If you ever wondered what it would be like if you got to go to the Olympics, here you go.
However, don't think you'll get the chance to follow in Swaney's footsteps in 2022. The International Olympic Committee is already looking into changing some of the requirements for qualification. Apparently, they don't want just anyone on their slopes. They want you to pull off a few tricks to get into the competition.
