S2 / EP7: BRITA SIGOURNEY

Brita Sigourey has spent most of her ski career in two places:  Standing on the podium and laying in a hospital bed.  She’s going into the Olympics with a clean bill of health and the some of the best results she’s ever had as a professional skier.  On the podcast Brita and I talk about her whole life and focus on the multitude of injuries she has experienced over the past 8 years, coming back to podiums each time and more.  It’s another good one!
