the philippines' first female at the winter olympics?

Check this out. Eden Roa Serina is the first and only snowboard racer from the Philippines on the World Cup circuit. Her goal is to be the first-ever female athlete representing the Philippines -- definitely not a nation known for its abundance of snow -- at a Winter Olympic Games. How cool would that be?

Eden was born in the Philippines, but actually grew up in the United States. Having narrowly missed qualifying for the 2006 Olympics, she's pursuing training full-time to race at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver... and looking for some sponsors.
