Picabo is pumped up to grab another gold

SHARE Picabo is pumped up to grab another gold

Picabo Street's left leg was broken and the ligaments in her right knee were mangled in a 1998 ski accident.

Now the 30-year-old is back with a competitive spirit and mended legs that she hopes will lead to one final hurrah ? a gold medal at the 2002 Winter Games.

"The chance to race in my home country and in Utah, my own back yard, is too yummy of a carrot," Street told Ladies' Home Journal in its February issue. (Street moved from Portland, Ore., to Park City, Utah, in 1999.)

Does she have a game plan for retirement?

"Time with my family is my first priority," said Street, who is engaged to John Mulligan, a ski technician. "But acting is intriguing. I've done commercials, and people in the entertainment industry say I'm 'cute.' "
