Turning Point She's Got The Beat

Turning Point She's Got The Beat

Turning Points
By Picabo Street
posted: 11/13/2002

They say music soothes the savage beast. That may be true, but I've always been really energized by rhythm and melody. In fact, the only thing I can listen to at night are nature sounds, because anything with a beat wakes my senses up-even classical music gets me going.Music affects my mood, and the right tunes motivate me in training and competition. When I need to take my mind off technique, music clears my mind and frees me up to ski naturally. My current "race mix"-which I listen to in the start area before every race-is a combination of reggae, rap and house hip-hop (a mixture of old school DJ spin and jazz). It has a dancy, thumpy beat that forces me to get into the roller coaster ride that is downhill.

Picabo Street, a 1994 Olympic silver medalist and the 1996 World Downhill Champion, is typically seen with either a helmet or headphones covering her ears.
