At six, Russian snowboarding prodigy is flying high

Vasilisa Ermakova may be too young for school, but the six-year-old Russian girl has already made a name for herself in an unlikely profession: snowboarding. Vasilisa spends five hours a day barrelling down slopes outside Moscow and has even smashed a number of national records. Coached by her father -- himself a former competitive snowboarder -- from the age of three, Vasilisa has mastered 360-degree jumps off large snow banks and even 540-degree spins.
