Ever heard of skeleton? Well, neither had Ióuntil 1995, when I was first introduced to the extreme sport. After my first run, I was hooked.

Headfirst is the story of a passion which initially developed with the sheer thrill of sliding down icy tracks at speeds of nearly eighty miles per hour. This fascination evolved into the realization of a childhood dreamórepresenting my country as a member of the United States Olympic team.
