It wasn’t until her junior year in high school that this beauty took up speed skating. In just three years, she saw herself competing at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. Not bad!
She competed at the 2006 Winter Games in Italy where she ended up in the seventh place. She was the 2007 US National Champion. In the early part of 2009, Allison suffered a broken leg after crashing at the World Cup in Bulgaria. Her leg was shattered.
