Jennifer Heils training
In preparation for the 2006 Olympics in Torino, Heil underwent a vigorous and innovative training program that combined conditioning, mental toughness, and nutrition, and was overseen by a number of professionals including sports psychologists, therapists, and nutritionists. On the day of the race, Heil was the last skier down the hill, executing a 360-degree spin and a back flip, resulting in a score of 26.50. She placed ahead of Kari Traa of Norway, the 2002 Olympic champion, by 0.85 points.
Heil won four World Cup mogul titles (2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007), one World Cup overall championship (2007), and two World Championship titles (2005 and 2007) leading into the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Though she took much of 2008 off to deal with injuries, she had a successful season in 2009, winning silver in the single moguls at the world championships. At the 2010 Games in Vancouver, Heil repeated her stellar performance but was edged out slightly by US skier Hannah Kearney, who won gold with her score of 26.63 points. Heil won the silver medal with 25.69 points. Shortly after the Olympics, Heil won her fifth title in moguls on the World Cup circuit. In 2011, Heil won her third world championship title in dual moguls, as well as her first world championship title in single moguls. She retired from competitive skiing the same year, and resumed her business studies at McGill University in Montréal .
