Karina Hollekim


Karina Hollekim is a Norwegian author, an international keynote speaker, computer programmer, coder, and athlete.

For more than ten years, as a mountain skier, and as a base jumper, Karina was a highly successful professional in the Red Bull team. In August 2006 she suffered a near-fatal crash after her chute failed during a routine parachuting jump. Karina hit the ground at over sixty miles an hour breaking her legs in twenty-one places. It looked like she might spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. But after twenty surgical operations she learned to walk once again and returned to skiing, to sport and to adventure.

Her story became the award-winning biographical movie 20 Seconds of Joy, and her autobiographical book The Wonderful Feeling of Fear.

Today Karina speaks and coaches around Europe as a much sought-after performance consultant. Her clients range from professional athletes to top business executives. They seek Karina for her ability to harness her setbacks to push boundaries, to demonstrate how to remain focused on goals, and to exploit the lesson of every hardship for the ultimate win.
