Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California (December 17, 2009) – The Internet welcomes ElleryHollingsworth.com a new website fueled by Gatorade that will allow fans, friends and snowboard enthusiasts to keep up with the 18-year-ol

d charger. Launched for the start of the Olympic qualifying season, Ellery’s packed travel schedule will be chronicled on the new site. The regular footer is coming off a solid 5th place finish at the opening U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix event at Copper Mountain last weekend, which earned her 3rd place points counted towards her campaign to earn a spot on the US Women’s Halfpipe Snowboarding Team heading to Vancouver.

“I have been competing and traveling the world since I was 14, where I’m constantly meeting new people and experiencing new things,” explains Hollingsworth. “Gatorade and I worked together to create a personal website which allows me to share these experiences with the world, while providing some insight into what I am passionate about on and off the snow.”

Ellery’s blog will feature a firsthand look into her fitness, health & nutrition, contest schedule, community work, adventures and giveaways. Also on the site are up-to-date postings of contest results, news, her bio and a dynamic display of action, lifestyle and portrait photos. The news section features everything from Ellery’s placing in contests to off-snow adventures including a recent appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly. On the program she explained how to land a 1080 for the affable, late night host. A fitting spokeswoman for the 1080 considering Ellery was the first woman to land a 1080 in the Superpipe earlier this year.

With Vancouver’s 2010 Olympic halfpipe finals exactly two months out, the heat is on in women’s halfpipe riding. Ellery’s competition schedule and placings last season prove that she’s in the running to become the youngest member of the U.S. women’s snowboard team. Look for her soaring high above the halfpipe walls at Grand Prix, Winter X Games U.S. Open and hopefully Olympic events throughout the winter.

Hollingsworth is supported by Burton, Nike 6.0, Gatorade, Oakley, Nixon, Mypla$h and the U.S. Snowboarding Team.
