Mikaili Sol is only 14-years-old and already a legend in her own right. Not only did she claim the Junior World Champion title for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, but she then went and stole the crown for the GKA Air Games World Championship and the World Kiteboarding Championships 2018, an unbelievable achievement for any athlete, but particularly for one of such a young age.
Don’t be fooled, however; it’s not all fun and games for this young Brazilian/American rider. Mikaili has a very tough training schedule and her coach, Fabio Ingrosso, pushes the teenager to her limits constantly. Combined with the fact that she is still being home-schooled at the same time, Mikaili is definitely working extremely hard and deserves each of her incredible achievements.
