U.S. Women Bobsledders Look Ahead to Sochi Olympics

Elana Meyers of Georgia and Aja Evans of Illinois are two bobsledders with a common goal: They want to represent the United States at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Meyers notes in her blog that Olympic hopefuls know that anything can happen in their quest.

“There is the potential for dreams to come true, for records to be broken, and medals to be won, and at this time everyone believes that they individually have the potential to make their dream a reality,” she said.

For a women’s bobsledding team, the combined weight of the pilot, brakeman and sled should total 340 kilograms, or else more weight must be added to the sled, making it harder to push. But pilot Meyers says fit and muscular brakeman Aja Evans is “built for bobsled.”

“Pound for pound, she is one of the best athletes I have ever seen,” said one athlete who works out in a Chicago-area gym at the same time as Evans. “Some of the guys I train with don’t want to run next to her because she can make guys who run for a living look bad.”
