USA’s Noelle Pinkus-Pace scored a silver medal last night in the skeleton event, the 80-mile per hour face-first sport. Great Britain’s Lizzy Yarnold won the gold with Russia’s Elena Nikitina adding the bronze for her home nation.
Pinkus-Pace, 31, mother of two, has had her challenges climbing to that medal platform. Training for Olympic success and raising little ones are a tough agenda. But it paid off with a big victory hug with tears from her family. Thumbs up from parent’s everywhere!
