Gisin's sister, Dominique, had a big influence on her love of American football. Dominique, who tied for a gold medal in the downhill at the 2014 Sochi Games, is a big fan of Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.
"She was crazy when there's football on," said Michelle Gisin, whose boyfriend is Italian ski racer Luca de Aliprandini. "Then I started watching with her and she explained it and I really got into it."
Gisin doesn't catch every Packers game, given her hectic schedule and the fact it's sometimes hard to find the Packers on TV while traveling all over Europe.
"I missed (a few games), because I am so busy. Because of all these races," she said. "It's really tough."
