Team USA Athlete Noelle Pikus-Pace Wins Silver Medal At Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

Team Kellogg's™ Team USA™ Skeleton Racer Shows From Great Starts Come Great Things®

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Noelle Pikus-Pace, U.S. Olympian and member of Team Kellogg's™, took the silver medal today in the skeleton event, finishing with a time of 3:53:86.

"It feels incredible to represent Team USA and Team Kellogg's on the podium at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games," said Pikus-Pace. "As an athlete and a mom, I know how important breakfast is. The fact that fans have the chance to help turn my great starts into a great thing – breakfast for kids in need – makes this win even more special."

Kellogg's® and Team Kellogg's Team Up for Great Starts
Kellogg's believes everyone deserves a great start, and that begins with breakfast. However, one in five kids goes without breakfast every day.[1] By supporting Team Kellogg's and their great starts, you can help provide 2 million breakfasts to kids in need through the "Give a Great Start" program[2].

  • Each time a fan tags a Facebook or Twitter post with #greatstarts, Kellogg's will help provide breakfast to a child in need.
  • Kellogg's has chronicled the inspirational beginnings of Team Kellogg's athletes in a series of moving "Start Story" videos that follow the athletes' journeys, which can be seen at Kelloggs.com/teamusa. For each view, like or share of the Start Stories, Kellogg's will help provide breakfast to a child in need.

Noelle's start came from an enormous appetite to please and her enthusiasm for sport. Her moment came when her high school bobsled coach asked for volunteers for something new. She jumped at the opportunity and he pulled out what seemed to be a cookie sheet. He asked her to lie on it and suggested she grip tight and without further ado, he pushed her with little ceremony and off she went. She descended, screaming in terror. Eventually that terror gave way to excitement, which then transformed into unfettered joy. At the end, at the bottom, beaming an enormous smile, she remembers saying to herself, AGAIN. AGAIN. I want to go again.

Watch Noelle's Start Story video, "Fastest Mom On Ice," available on Kellogg's YouTube page, to learn more about her journey toward the Sochi Games. For more information about Noelle and the rest of Team Kellogg's, visit kelloggs.com/teamusa.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
