Video from the Oakley 'Perform Beautifully' FW2011/12 campaign which portraits female athletes like freestyle and backcountry skier Grete Eliassen. Oakley publishes an interview with questions such as "How do you see yourself? Are you rebellious? Quiet? Weird? Why?" - Grete Eliassen answers: "Basically, I'm rebellious and weird. Sometimes I do things so differently then others, which may seem rebellious to me, but to others they just find me weird." With her movie project 'Say My Name' (available on iTunes) "...Grete pushed her own boundaries for women in all sports." oakley.com/sports/ski/athletes/33
