Victoria Silvstedt


Very Short background
She was born in Skelleftehamn, Silvstedt was raised in a family of five in a small village in the Northern part of Sweden, having one older sister and one younger brother. She was keen on horseback riding, and wanted to become a veterinarian.
Silvstedt’s father was the captain of the local ski team, and she started alpine skiing at the age of five. A gifted athlete, Silvstedt became a world-class member of the Swedish National Ski Team, ranking as high as fourth among her future Olympian teammates in the Super Giant Slalom during a Swedish Junior Championship. Once, she did compete against Pernilla Wiberg, losing to her by one and half seconds. However, a shoulder accident in the middle of a skiing competition prematurely ended Silvstedt’s Olympic dreams at the age of 16.
A few years later, Silvstedt was invited to participate in the Miss Sweden beauty pageant, after her mother and sister had sent some pictures of her to the pageant officials.
