Huber hails from Berchtesgaden, the same city as three-time Olympic luge gold medalist Georg Hackl... She began her career in that sport and switched to skeleton in 2003... Since finishing eighth in her Olympic debut in Torino, Huber has become one of the world's top sliders... In 2008 she claimed the world title.
As the pilot for the USA-1 bobsled, I broke a 62-year gold medal drought when my sled, the 'Night Train" won the Olympic title at the 2010 Vancouver Games. A degenerative eye condition nearly caused me to quit my sport in 2008, but corrective surgery restored my vision to 20-20.
