Mia Brookes is 16 years old, and became the first woman snowboarder to land a 1440 trick in a competition - her first world championships, too.
Here's what she had to say afterwards:
I feel like I could cry, I’ve never been so happy in my life... My coach said ‘If you want to win, try the 14’. I knew it was possible.
If you're teaching, or learning, or coaching, or building anything that teachers, learners, or coaches use - you could probably learn a lot from trying to decipher what went right in the lead-up to this moment. Or this one. You won't always get to build/support/live something as awesome as this. But even 10% of that would be worth your time.
