She's done it again.

Regina Jaquess, 29, of Santa Rosa Beach has brought home yet two more gold medals — this time from the World Games in Cali, Columbia.

Skiing as part of team USA, Regina captured the gold in slalom and jumps a few weeks ago.

"It was great," Regina said, noting she was one of six skiing for team USA. Out of the six skiers, three were from the Panhandle, Adam Pickos of Santa Rosa Beach and Andrew Adkinson of Chipley.

"The competition was from all over the world," she said. "I had a lot to beat, but I came out really well."

The USA had only one skier in each event with Regina taking on slalom and jump.

"It was a real honor just to make it to the games," said Regina, who's been skiing since age 2. "Slalom is my strongest."
