Video: The Life of a World Champion Sled Dog Racer

Meet Sigrid Ekran, a two-time world champion sled dog racer. Sigrid has dedicated her life to her sport, so much so that she lives in the Norwegian wilderness without power or even running water in her cabin. This video gives us a glimpse of her daily life, which is dedicated to training with her dogs and enjoying the solitude that comes with mushing along remote trails. After this film was made, she went on to race for 1100 km (682 miles) over six days to capture her second world championship. Seeing how determined, driven, and experienced she is, it is easy to understand how she does so well.
