The perky, popular Olympic champion skier with the smile-inducing name battled depression while trying to recover from serious leg and knee injuries suffered in March 1998. Street often stayed in her dark bedroom and avoided all contact with the outside world for months. ''I went through a huge depression,'' she told The New York Times in September 2000. ''I went all the way to rock bottom. I never thought that I ever would experience anything like that in my life. I think it was a combination of the atrophying of my legs, the new scars, and feeling like a caged animal.” With the support of her family, she ultimately returned to skiing, and after retiring, found a new career working with horses.
