a-179x300Nov 26, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Celebrity professional snow boarder and Winter Olympics silver medal winner, Gretchen Bleiler reportedly appeared at the “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” on Wednesday. The appearance of Gretchen at the show could be the fact that she is currently heading the X games during the qualification rounds. The amazing snowboarder was not the only one who appeared on the show. That occurred yesterday. She was accompanied with Saturday Night Live alum Norm MacDonald and musician Dan Cummins.

Pre-show, Gretchen Bleiler seemed quite exciting following her appearance at the Conan O’Brien show. “I am super excited to be going to the Conan O’Brien show. I think he is the man and I love watching his show. It is going to be an awesome experience to be on the couch myself,” said the Olympic silver medalist before her appearance on the show. Gretchen Bleiler is best known for bringing a sort of revolution amongst the female snow-boarders in the recent times.

As history beckons, Gretchen started competing in the Winter X games from a very early age. Her passion for snow boarding hails as early as when she was 11 years old. Since then she has been involved in various games professionally, participating as a snowboard rider. Although Bleiler reportedly missed out for qualifying at the 2002 Winter Olympics, she made a startling comeback at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Italy, bagging the silver medal in the women’s “half-pipe” snowboarding championship. People who are close to Bleiler reveals that when Bleiler is not competing, she keeps herself involved in surfing, mountain biking, interior designing and fashion.
