Brenna’s story – from Team USA:

Brenna was not always a snowboard world champion. She began her love of sports with gymnastics when she was young. An osteosarcoma diagnosis (bone cancer) in 2010 resulting in the amputation of her right leg led her down a different path. A month after her amputation surgery, Huckaby got her first prosthetic leg, set her eyes on the slopes, uprooted her life in Louisiana and moved to Salt Lake City. She attacked snowboarding with the same passion she did with gymnastics. Huckaby began competing in 2013 while training at the National Ability Center in Utah. Following a few successful seasons on the mountain, she took a break from the sport in early 2016 to give birth to her daughter.

A quote from Brenna:

I hope women feel empowered by it. Everyone should feel sexy. It doesn’t matter what your body looks like, when you feel good in your skin it shows. Let me tell you, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t feel good in your own skin! I see it as an opportunity to inspire others. It’s very rare, if ever, you see a woman with a disability pose in sexy swimsuits. I want to help change the stigma behind disabilities. I want other women, regardless of their body, to know they are powerful and sexy.

Kim Kardashian Has a 24-Inch Waist and 39-Inch Hips

BGUS_1048197_001 - Kim Kardashian Has a 24-Inch Waist and 39-Inch Hips

The full details from People magazine:

Forget talking about books — at Kim Kardashian’s inaugural book club meeting last year, all her sister Kourtney could focus on was Kim’s tiny waist. Kim shared a video from their book club meeting on her app on Monday, and before they could dive in to her selection, Embraced by the Light by Betty J. Eadie, Kourtney turned the discussion to Kim’s body.

“I can’t take your hips seriously right now,” Kourtney said to Kim. “Because your waist is so small and your hips are so big.”

Kardashian hairdresser and BFF Jen Atkin then asked Kim for her measurements, and Kim had Chrissy Teigen guess (she went with 23 inches).

“24,” Kim said, with a smirk.

“24? That’s insane,” Atkin replied.

“It’s never been 24 ever in my life,” Kim said, and after Atkin asked, added that her hips are 39 inches. After giving birth to son Saint West, 2, in Dec. 2015, Kim started on the Atkins Diet and jumpstarted her workout routine to get back to her pre-pregnancy shape, and lose the 70 lbs. she gained with Saint and daughter North, 4. But over the last year, Kim took her workouts and diet to another level with trainer Melissa Alcantara.

“Kim told me, ‘I love my body. I love the way it looks and I love my hips,’ ” Alcantara recently told PEOPLE. “She just wanted more muscle. She wanted bigger hamstrings, which accentuates the entire leg. And she wants those cut arms and abs!” Kim now works out with Alcantara six days a week at 6 a.m., and they focus on different areas of the body each day. “Kim has been getting some really nice results, like with her triceps!” Alcantara said. “She can’t believe how much has changed over the last few months. And when you’re in this deep, it’s hard to go back. She just keeps it up.”

The trainer added that Kim’s body goals have changed. “She didn’t want to be skinny. She wanted to have muscle and feel strong. And she wanted to find something she can do for the rest of her life,” Alcantara said. “I totally understood where she was coming from.”
