Personal: Brenna was not always a snowboard world champion. She began her love of sports with gymnastics when she was young. An osteosarcoma diagnosis in 2010 resulting in the amputation of her right leg led her down a different path. A month after her amputation surgery, Huckaby got her first prosthetic leg, set her eyes on the slopes, uprooted her life in Louisiana and moved to Salt Lake City. She attacked snowboarding with the same passion she did with gymnastics. Huckaby began competing in 2013 while training at the National Ability Center in Utah. Following a few successful seasons on the mountain, she took a break from the sport in early 2016 to give birth to her daughter. She quickly returned to training in late August in preparation for the 2017 season...Daughter of Jeffry and Kristie Huckaby...Has two brothers, Jeremy and Jordan...Has one daughter, Lilah...Engaged to Tristan Clegg...Hobbies include hiking, biking and playing with her daughter...Favorite TV show is Shameless...Passionate about culinary arts...Is a gymnastics judge and also practices gymnastics at a local gym in Utah...Credits American Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin as her idol.
