Sky Christopherson is an Olympic Athlete on a global mission to create sustainable health and fitness. Called a 'Wunderkind' by The New York Times, and recently voted 5th nationwide in 'Top 40 under 40 in Healthcare Innovation', Sky is a world record holder and was a member of the U.S. Cycling Team's 'Project 96' and runner of the Olympic Torch prior to the 1996 Olympics. Frustrated by the rampant doping culture in cycling, Sky retired after the 2000 Olympics and dedicated his career in search for a better solution.

In 2011, Sky broke a world record using an individualized digital health approach inspired by Dr. Eric Topol, the previous holder of the record receiving a lifetime ban for drugs. This experiment was the genesis of the patent-pending ‘Data not Drugs’ Artificial Intelligence-driven health and fitness system and health tech company OAthlete that helped athletes win medals at the 2012 London Olympics, receiving international media and currently being developed into a consumer mobile app called 'The GOLD App'.

Sky is also featured in the award-winning documentary film 'Personal Gold (2016)' acquired by Netflix and released during the 2016 Rio Olympics and being distributed in 59 countries worldwide.

Sky is currently an advocate and public speaker for global sustainable health and fitness with ‘Data not Drugs’ and splits his time between San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Budapest Hungary working on The GOLD App coordinating closely with Apple which will bring these Olympic medal-winning breakthroughs to consumers worldwide.

Sky has been featured in Forbes, Sports Illustrated, Outside Magazine, The Financial Times, Nekkei Asian Review, NBC Comcast, and speaker at conferences ranging from TEDxSouth by Southwest (SXSW), Applied ScienceConsumer Electronics Show, San Francisco Health 2.0 New York Digital Health, Quantified Self Global ConferenceVerizon Healthcare & Life Science Summit, and others, and is also an XPRIZE consultant.
