This week we want to introduce you to skeleton-extraordinaire – Noelle Pikus-Pace.

Noelle is an example of an athlete who just can’t get the sport out of her mind! She retired after finishing fourth in Vancouver but came back last year with a fury, winning silver at the World Championships. Another example of her indomitableness is her amazing recovery from a serious injury to her leg after being hit by a bobsled while training. The accident sidelined her for the 2005-2006 season but she roared back to win the 2007 World Championships and placed second overall in the World Cup standing. This mother of two is not stopping now. Teaming with Katie Uhlaender, she plans to do America proud at Sochi!

Stay tuned as Marketing Female Athletes brings you all the must-watch athletes for the Sochi Olympics.
