Olympic Athlete Picabo Street on the Trials and Triumphs of Motherhood

Ten years ago, Olympian Picabo Street’s passion was the ski slopes. Today, its her family. And while she’s still proud of the three Olympic medals she won (tucked away safely at her mom’s house in Park City) it’s her three kids with husband John – -Eli, 6, Trey, 5 and Dax, 5 months — that make her beam with pride. While she ventured back to the slopes and the spotlight during the 2010 Winter Olympic games — as both mentor to Lindsey Vonn and special correspondent for the Today show –Picabo is now back to being a mom, and focusing on her other passions such as advocating for womens health and fundraising for charities. We sat down with her to speak candidly about the difference between her boys, raising a blended family, and yes, occasionally bribing her kids at Walmart.
