How did Kelly Sildaru Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on February 17, 2002, in Tallinn, Estonia, Kelly Sildaru has been making waves in the freeskiing world for many years despite her young age. Coached by her father, it was apparent that she had inherited his passion for the sport. A natural on skis, she began to compete in various competitions when she was ten years old.
At the age of thirteen, she participated in her first Winter X Games where she defeated Tiril Sjastad Christiansen for a gold medal in the slopestyle. With that, she not only became the first person from Estonia to win a medal, but she also became the youngest skier to have ever finished in first place at a Winter X Game event.
Though the breakdown of prize money has not been publicized, it’s said that one can easily earn up to $3 million from a single victory depending on the event. Considering that, it’s likely that Sildaru has earned herself a fair amount of her accomplishments at the games.
Since her first gold medal win at the 2016 Winter X Games, she’s also won two additional medals- one gold, one silver, in the big air and slopestyle events in 2017. That same year, she had also finished second for a silver medal at the Winter X Games Europe which took place in Hafjell.
Aside from her achievements at the Winter X Games, she has also proved herself to be a worthy contender at other events such as the Winter Dew Tour. For two consecutive years (i.e. 2015-2016), she had won a gold medal in the slopestyle event in Breckenridge.
Most recently last year, the teen also triumphed at the 2017 Junior World Championships where she won both the slopestyle and halfpipe events. Naturally, she would have also earned herself some prize money from the two victories.
Though she originally intended to compete in the women’s slopestyle in the 2018 Winter Games, a knee injury ultimately forced her to miss the Olympics.
