The new president and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard says she is “confident” of good results at the Beijing Olympics and hopeful for “a bunch of medals.” Sophie Goldschmidt’s best sport was always tennis — that’s what brought her from London to Baylor University on a scholarship — but an affinity for skiing developed on a school trip at age 12 stuck.

She had been CEO of the World Surf League and her previous experience includes stints at the NBA, the Women’s Tennis Association and golf’s European Tour.
