If there’s anyone that knows about the importance of a support system, it’s a Sochi Winter Olympian. Noelle Pikus-Pace, a skeleton athlete and mother of two, could wholeheartedly voice the vitality of this unit in her life—and in fact, she did! She knows she didn’t get to where she is (which is competing against the best athletes in the world!) by herself.
