T-ball, gymnastics, volleyball, tae kwon do, softball, and, yes, skiing. Jonna Mendes, 26, has been a serious athlete her entire life, but for the last 10 years she's been bashing gates as a member of the U.S. Alpine Ski Team. A four-time U.S. champion, the South Lake Tahoe, California, native still finds time to cross-train. We caught up with her at the batting cages, where she was roping line drives.
