Getting to know: Gretchen Bleiler

She's not the reigning Olympic champion, but Torino silver medalist Gretchen Bleiler is the face of women's snowboarding... Born in Ohio and raised in Aspen, the photogenic halfpipe star has earned the nickname "Super G" due in part to a massive well of energy that fuels an array of off-snow endeavors... Last summer, Bleiler was married in Costa Rica, making her grand entry into the ceremony on a horse.

    Who am I?

    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.
