Fly Baby: The Story of an American Girl, is a memoir by world alpine ski champion Kimberley Jochl.
Fly Baby is a story about an American girl’s hilarious and soulful journey through life. Always daring and mischievous, Kim and her twin sister rose quickly to the top ranks of competitive skiing, training and racing around the globe as members of the United States Alpine Ski Team.
Writing now from the relatively quiet life of a former world-class athlete, Kim looks back on those early days, sharing the highs and lows of coming of age as part of a competitive community. She courageously points out the often glossed-over difficulties inherent in composing a team of athletes who compete individually and pulls back the veil to reveal the physical trauma and mental anguish that many serious athletes endure.
Kim then walks us candidly through her experiences on the business side of snow, in the boardroom and the community, in marriage, motherhood, and even her turbulent voyage toward earning a private pilot’s license.
The story of Fly Baby is entirely relatable, like talking with an old friend. It demonstrates that a zeal for life and the drive for excellence in everything you undertake are just as rewarding as winning a gold medal.
For an incredible experience, read Fly Baby: The Story of an American Girl.
