"Today" shared a brief interview with Utah mom, Latter-day Saint and Olympic athlete Noelle Pikus-Pace on Feb. 3.
While "athletes and their families are becoming increasingly anxious about possible terrorist attacks," according to a New York Times article, Pikus-Pace feels most comfortable with her family by her side at Sochi.
In the video, Matt Lauer mentions Pikus-Pace can "jump right in, in mom style."
"For me, it's mom first, and it will always be mom first," the skeleton racer said. "It's easier for me to be able to compete down the track while I have these little distractions going on around me. It helps me to be able to focus and it helps me to be able to give my best."
