This 21-year-old California native earned the first medal for the U.S. Team in mogul skiing on the first afternoon of competition, Feb. 9. After not even finishing in the top 10 in World Cup competition that season, she surprised everyone but herself with a silver medal in the ski race at Deer Valley. She subsequently competed in two other Olympic Games, earning bronze in Vancouver. She is now retired, married and running her own business, Silver Bean Coffee, in Salt Lake City.
