This year at the ongoing Beijing Winter Olympic Games, the hosts have their hopes laying on the shoulders of Eileen Gu, the United States-born freestyle skier who is representing China at the Games. Emerging as one of the most popular athletes at the Winter Olympics, Gu is also a model for IMG Models– and has her face across signboards and magazine covers in the country. However, the teenager is also a beauty with brains, as her SAT score of 1580 speaks on behalf of her intellect.

Medals in skiing, modeling for top brands, marking a 1580 SAT score, Eileen Gu can do it all

During the build-up to the Winter Olympics, Gu’s popularity skyrocketed in the country, with the state-run media headlines addressing her as ‘Snow princess Gu Ailing’, her native name. Born in San Francisco, to American father and Chinese mother, the 18-year-old has been competing for China since 2019, the same year when Gu acquired her Chinese citizenship via naturalization.

However, Gu was already fixated to be donning the Chinese flag and had already made her decision public back in 2015, a few months after making it to her first ever World Cup podium. The decision was received with much controversy, bringing the freestyle skier to the limelight.

Nevertheless, Gu’s medal records already show why she is set to become one of the brightest starts in world sports. At the 2020 Winter Youth Olympics, she clinched two golds in both big air and halfpipe, as well as a silver in slopestyle. She continued her remarkable performance at the Winter X Games and the World Championships last year, bagging two golds and one bronze in each of the tournaments.

In addition to her domination in the events of halfpipe, big air and slopestyle, Gu also has a career in modelling and is represented by the renowned international modeling agency IMG Models. She models for top brands such as Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co.

Aside from her brawn in the sport and her beauty in modeling, Gu also bears the brain that had her reach an astounding score of 1580 out of a possible 1600 on her SAT, as her country’s media often reports the achievement.

Highlights:

  • US-born skier Eileen Gu, who is representing China at the Beijing Winter Olympics, achieved a score of 1580 on her SAT exam.
  • The 18-year-old has dominated the sport in halfpipe, big air and slopestyle, as well as models for Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co.
