Torah Bright, Olympic snowboarder, is LDS
Australian snowboarder Torah Bright, who won a gold medal in the women’s halfpipe at the 2010 Winter Olympics and a silver medal in the 2014 Winter Olympics, is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
An article from The Australian today titled “Clean-living Mormon star Torah Bright is a sponsor’s dream” stated, “As well as her good looks and obvious talent, Bright’s Mormon upbringing and clean-living ways — she does not drink alcohol and has no drug, tobacco or even caffeine habit — will make her highly sought-after.”
In speaking about the influence of the Church on her personal life, Bright has said, “I have strong beliefs and they never waver. (The gospel) keeps me grounded and gives me purpose to what I am doing. I think the way we believe as Latter-day Saints is amazing, especially in the world today.”
She lives and trains in Salt Lake City, Utah.
