Skeleton is among the fastest sports in the Olympic Winter Games and that also means the margins between winning a medal and going home empty-handed are very, very small.
American Noelle Pikus-Pace knows that all too well, having finished fourth in the women’s skeleton competition four years ago in Vancouver by a tenth of a second. After the 2010 Games, Pikus-Pace announced her retirement from the sport, but after a change of heart, she’ll travel to Sochi hoping to earn the medal that eluded her in Western Canada.
