Supermodel Bella Hadid Might Be Heading to the Olympics

And she’s actually really good. But at what sport?

Bella Hadid is more than just a pretty face. If she gets her wish, she’ll taking that famous mug of hers straight to the Olympic come 2016.

In an interview for Porter magazine, the 18-year-old discussed her love for all things equestrian, aka horse-riding. “My devotion stemmed from my mom’s love of horses,” she said. I have been riding since I could walk and the fact that my mom knew everything about horses really helped my passion grow.”

That passion—which has seen the brunette stunner and rumored The Weeknd girlfriend on horseback since age three—will push her to Rio De Janeiro next year if she gets her wish. Hadid told the magazine that she’d love to compete on the U.S. in equestrian events when the city hosts the Olympics in 2016.

This isn’t some fly-by-night hobby of course. In fact, away from the catwalk she’s won numerous awards and even has ranked nationally for her skills. And while we have no clue how she stacks up talent wise against her possible competitors, we doubt any of the other countries will have a face as pretty as this one competing.
