Local skier/pharmacist brings home two more medals

Published: Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 03:53 PM.

Regina holds the current world record in slalom, skiing "3 at 41-feet off."

In 2010, Regina tied the World Record in slalom that had been held by Kristi Overton Johnson for 14 years.

"Later that year I broke it and have held it ever since," she said.

In addition to her recent World Game accomplishments, Regina has a long list of accomplishments such as two-time World Overall Champion, two-time World Slalom Champion, World Trick Champion, four time World Slalom Record Holder, and two time World Overall Record Holder to name a few.

Setting records is nothing Regina takes for granted.

"It's hard to be at the top. You don't have a goal to chase," she said. However, "You have to keep looking behind because you always have three or four in the hunt right on your heels."

To stay current and on top of her game, Regina will be competing this weekend in Jackson, Miss.
