Introducing Team Infinit Athlete - Lanette Prediger

We love fuelling and supporting athletes from a wide variety of sports, whether it be hockey, triathlon, beach volleyball, or track and field to name a few. Recently, we connected with Canadian Skeleton racer, Lanette Prediger, and we are thrilled to announce that she is the newest member to Team Infinit - and also the only Skeleton racer on the roster. Here is the story of Lanette:

"In 2006 Lanette was watching the Winter Olympic Games on TV and saw Canadian Mellisa Hollingsworth slide headfirst down an icy chute, to a bronze medal finish, in a crazy sport called skeleton.  For some reason the thought that went through her head was “Hey, I could do that.”  Within in the year, she was signed up for the skeleton driving school at Canada Olympic Park. After a few runs of ping-ponging down the track, she was hooked.

Since then, Lanette has climbed the ranks from recreational slider, through the North American and European circuits of the development level, and onto the national team in 2011.  After three seasons of racing internationally on the Intercontinental Cup circuit, this past season Lanette achieved her long-time goal of qualifying for a spot on the 2014/15 World Cup circuit. She did exceptionally well in her rookie season on World Cup, with a top 4 and several top ten finishes.  She also finished top ten in her first ever World Championships, placed 9th overall on the World Cup Circuit, and is currently ranked 2nd in Canada.  She looks eagerly to the future where World Cup medals and a spot on the 2018 Olympic Winter Games podium are in her sights.

Lanette also has a passion for travel and can regularly be found backpacking around the globe, with more than 50 countries checked off her list, and always one (or two … or more … ) more voyages in the works. Beyond sports, work and travelling, Lanette is an avid reader, outdoor enthusiast, foodie and can be easily bribed with cupcakes. If it is fast or exciting or dangerous, or preferably fast, exciting and dangerous, that’s probably where you’ll find Lanette. Unless “The Bachelor” is on TV that night."

Lanette is currently training in her off-season, but we are excited to track her successes this upcoming winter. Welcome to the team!
