Olympic skeletal racer Noelle Pikus-Pace says winning a silver medal at Sochi was a “family dream come true.”

Winter Olympics skeletal racer Noelle Pikus-Pace has a lot to be happy about. The mother of two recently chatted with Celebrity Baby Scoop about her kids, family life in Utah, and winning her first Olympic silver medal at Sochi. When we asked Noelle about her kids, she shared, “Both kids are great little travelers and have been adaptable to moving around, to my training and to not being home since late fall. Lacee is sweet caring and very social. Traycen is all little boy-curious, into everything, and follows everything his big sister does. Both are high energy, so keeping them busy is key.” When not in training, Noelle says the family spends time together playing games, cooking in the kitchen, playing outside, gardening, and cooking together. Wondering how an Olympic athlete balances training and motherhood?  Noelle says, “I have the best husband in the world, we are a team and manage everything with our family. We set the schedule together at the beginning of the week which has included my training at home and at the track. We do not have childcare even when we were traveling around the world. We just jump right in and stay as flexible as we can since we know things do not always work out perfectly.”

When asked what it’s like to win her first Olympic medal, she said, “It was a dream come true, not just my dream, but our dream, our family dream come true.  That’s why the minute I crossed that finish line I just had to be with them.  I had to get to Janson and the kids. They had all given up so much for so long for that moment.  It was mine, it was 100% ours.”
