Jutta Leerdam is a 6 time world champion Speed Skater. She has won an Olympic medal or two, not a gold but she's still young enough to do a few more Olympics and she will be a world class contender.
It's the Holiday season, people are dreaming of a white Christmas and the likes, so I figure some attention to winter Olympic sports in non-Olympic years is just what the sport needs to become more lucrative for the athletes involved.
The more people watching the more sponsorship money and the less they'll have to date rich guys like Jake Paul, or double down as an "influencer" who happens to speed skate, basically reducing their athleticism to silly TikTok dances for a mindless generation that only cares about social media following.
Luckily for Jutta, she's got the look and feel of an influencer, but old Helga the East German raised in communism, who was growing a beard before transgenderism was an accepted thing, never was so lucky with her speed skating prowess and career. If only she had social media and could dance awkwardly to trending sounds, her life as an Olympian would be so different!
