11th Grade - Meraaker High School

16 years old

Ylva-li Næss, 16, is an eleventh grader from Meeraker, Norway. At the age of one, she started dog sledding with her father. But it wasn't until she was 12-years-old that she started to train her own team. Currently the family owns 20 sled dogs, however they only race 10 of them. Some of her racing in Norway includes Femundløpet Junior (4th place in 2022) and Finnmarskløpet Junior (4th place in 2023). Next year, Ylva-li is excited to have the opportunity to be an exchange student in the United States. In her free time, she enjoys running and strength training. After high school, she would like to compete in the Iditarod.
