Halfpipe snowboarder Arielle Gold may have missed her chance to compete in the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, but we haven’t heard the last of her. She will have plenty of opportunities to practice and participate in other competitions before the 2018 games.

And attending an online school—K12 partner school Insight School of Colorado—will help give her more time to perfect her craft.

She says that the flexibility of her day-to-day schedule in an online school allows her to practice up to four hours per day while still completing her schoolwork.
