Among the favorites in the women's skeleton competition is Utah mother of two Noelle Pikus-Pace, but whether she's up to the challenge remains to be seen.

After finishing fourth in Vancouver four years ago, Pikus-Pace retired from the sport only to change her mind, make a comeback and become a top contender in Sochi. But she's nursing a back injury and didn't even take all of her practice runs earlier this week.
