Picabo Street Biography
Growing Up, Not Amateur For Long, Rebuilding, Plagued By Injuries, Chronology, Awards And AccomplishmentsCONTACT INFORMATION, SELECTED WRITINGS BY STREET:
Picabo Street can be called many things, from a "skiing phenomenon" to a "Brat" to an "Amazing Super-G Downhill Force." Street, one of the greatest downhill skiers in U.S. downhill women's history, accumulated an
incredible collection of World Championships and Olympic medals in her short career before choosing to retire in 2002. Her can-do attitude and willingness to speak her mind brought popularity to the women's downhill, and Street's good-natured outlook on life and girl-next-door face made her the hero of many young women who also want to do more than just succeed in life and, as Street has said of her own desires as a child, not only "be as good as the boys … [but] be better."
