Interview with Olympic Medalist Noelle Pikus Pace at 2024 Simplot Games

The annual Simplot Games were held the weekend of February 16th at the ICCU Dome. This year, ISU welcomed special guest, Olympic silver medalist Noelle Pikus Pace.

Over 2,000 athletes travel from across the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to compete in the annual Simplot Games held at the ISU ICCU Dome. The games are more than just a competition for the athletes, they get the chance to meet Olympians.

Each year, the Simplot Games holds a special event for attendees, and this year it was a Friday morning breakfast where guests could mingle with the Olympians. “Breakfast with Fosbury and Friends” featured special guest speaker Noelle Pikus Pace.

I had the chance to talk with Pace herself at the event about her experiences as an Olympian and alumni of the Simplot Games.
