Picabo Street: Hype About Bad Conditions in Sochi Is ‘Way Off’


Former Olympic skiing champ Picabo Street has been in Sochi covering the Winter Games for Fox Sports Live and considering the games started out with journalists complaining about the water and their hotels, we had to wonder, is it really that bad?

Nope! Not according to Picabo, at least.

“You know, the hype was way off,” the athlete revealed to On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “It feels secure. The people are nice. They’re very helpful. Everything feels secure. The venues are awesome. It’s the first time at the Olympics the athletes are all gonna say, ‘The venues rock!'”

Outside of her duties with Fox, Picabo’s also working with the “Stay on the Slopes Initiative,” a program that provides injury prevention technology to keep athletes injury free on and off the slopes. Click here for more info!
