Anik Wild humbled

Anik Wild is a former X Games champion in skicross, businesswoman, and proud mom. She competed for over 30 years in downhill ski racing and 10 months before the 2010 Olympics, she was forced to retire from her sport due to the cumulative effects of her multiple concussions. Anik sat down with Erin and Kristin in Truckee, CA, where she currently lives with her husband and son to talk about the love of competing, the heartache of having to leave her dream of an Olympic medal on the table, and the joy of being a mom and lifelong athlete. Anik is pursuing life after sport with just as much intensity as she did her career as a skicross racer, but the process of leaving active competition has been a long emotional journey and is the first to admit that she's not completely over it.
