Noelle Pikus Pace graduated from Mountain View High School in 2001. In high school she competed in soccer, basketball, softball, track and field, bobsled and also skeleton. She then went on to run track and field at Utah Valley University and graduated in 2005 1st team All-American with a bachelor degree in Community Health. During that time she also broke the UVU high jump record and was the NJCAA National Discus Champion. She became the first woman to ever win the Overall World Cup Title in skeleton that same year. She was favored to win the Gold Medal going into the 2006 Winter Olympics. At the U.S. Olympic trials in October of 2005 an unfortunate accident kept her from competing at the Olympic Games. A bobsled unexpectedly came out of the track and hit her. She sustained a compound fracture to her lower right leg and because of this injury she was unable to compete in the Olympics. The following year, she came back to win the World Championships by the largest margin the history of the sport. She continued on with her education and received a Masters degree in Business Administration in 2007. In 2008 Noelle decided to take a year off from competition and she and her husband Janson had a little girl, Lacee Lynne Pace. During this time, she started her own hat business, SnowFire Hats, and continued to compete the following year. Noelle competed in the 2010 Winter Olympics, on a sled that her husband built, and was the top U.S finisher finishing 4th, just one-tenth of a second out of the medals. She retired after the Olympics to spend more time with her family and Noelle and Janson had a baby boy named Traycen in 2011. The summer of 2012, Noelle and Janson decided that she would give it one last try to earn an Olympic Medal, but only if their family could all travel together. They raised enough money last season to make it happen and Noelle had her best results ever. She won 16 national and international medals including 10 gold medals, 4 silvers, and 2 bronze. She won the Silver Medal in the World Championship Individual event and the Gold at World Championships in the team event as well as a Gold Medal on the 2014 Olympic Track in Sochi, Russia. She finished the season ranked 3rd in the World. Noelle and her family are now looking forward to competing again this season as their sights are set on the Olympic Games in February.
