Liz has found a special place in our hearts after represented Hungary in the women’s freeski halfpipe. 

Elizabeth Swaney seemed surprised that she didn't quite make the cut even though she scored 31.40 which is a whole 40 points behind the next lowest score:

I didn't qualify for finals, so I'm really disappointed.

Liz seemed to get into the Olympics through a loop-hole by claiming her grandparents’ heritage; she claimed to be Hungarian.

Her goal was to get people involved in sport: 

I still want to inspire people to get involved with athletics or a new sport or a new challenge at any age in life.
