After checking off the last box that needed to be checked in her competitive skeleton career last night at Sanki Sliding Center, U.S. racer Noelle Pikus-Pace officially received her silver medal in a ceremony today in Sochi.

Pikus-Pace overcame concussion-like symptoms in the days leading up to the competition, and managed to put a final exclamation point on a career that’s seen both highs and lows.
