Olympic Gold Medalist Nikki Stone to Release Book: Shaun White a Contributor

Posted By: The Ski Channel on September 15, 2009 8:28 pm

Former U.S. Freestyle Ski Team aerialist Nikki Stone is set to publish her book this winter. Dubbed When Turtles Fly, the book features personal stories from successful public figures who’ve made it because they weren’t afraid to “stick their necks out.”

Contributors include Olympic snowboarding superstar Shaun White, designer Tommy Hilfiger, NFL legend Steve Young and perfect 10 gymnast Nadia Comenici, among several others. Stone herself is an Olympic gold medalist, having won the aerials event in 1998 in Nagano. If that’s not enough inspiration for you, Stone plans to donate 25% of all proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

When Turtles Fly is due to hit shelves in January, 2010.
