Video: Noelle Pikus-Pace, who traveled to Sochi with her husband and children, joins Matt Lauer in Sochi to chat about competing in the Games in the women’s skeleton. Unlike many athletes, she says she loves having her family with her when she competes. "For me, it's mom first," Pikus-Pace said, giggling with her daughter in her arms. "It helps me to be able to focus and it helps me to be able to give my best with my family by my side."
