Lydia has been pushing her ski performance to new limits since childhood. She has participated in three Winter Olympics, achieving gold in the Vancouver 2010 games. She achieved this after coming back from a crushing knee injury at the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy. Not only did she continue to pursue gold, she also created a business from her experiences. She leveraged her own painful challenge to create a line of cold therapy products for icing injuries.
