Marketing Female Athletes will be spotlighting athletes in different sports leading up to the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Some of them you may have already heard about but there definitely will be many whom you’ve never heard about until here and now!
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!
