    Born in Madison, Wisconsin

    Sister of Eric Heiden
    She is overshadowed by her brother.
    Due to an ankle injury, she had disappointing results at the 1980 Winter Olympics.
    She developed a nagging case of tennis elbow -- not from her athletic endeavors but from wiping down tables at her kids' elementary school.
    She said, 'I remember being on the cover of Time magazine and thinking it was pretty cool, but I don't have a copy of it. Every now and then, someone sends one to me for an autograph and I think, 'Oh, I wish this was mine.'
    When an interviewer pointed out she could probably find a copy of that issue on eBay, she replied 'I'd feel really dumb to buy a copy of a magazine of myself.'
    She was a multisport athlete.
    She won the world road championship in cycling (1980).
    She won the NCAA championship in cross-country skiing (1983).
    She returned to cross-country skiing after raising her children, and at age 50, finished in the top 10 in two races at the US Nationals (2010).
    She noted, 'I probably spent my top athletic years being a coach and a mom instead of racing. I don't regret it at all.'
