2009 world champion in the 1000m... Also won a gold in team pursuit and bronze in the 1500m... Won the overall World Cup title in the 1000m and was third in the 1500m... Had previously struggled at major meets, but called the 2009 Single Distance Worlds a "breakthrough"... Switched to long track from short track when she was forced to relocate to Calgary, where the national team trains... Made her Olympic debut in Torino, posting her best finish in the 1500m, where she was seventh.
As the pilot for the USA-1 bobsled, I broke a 62-year gold medal drought when my sled, the 'Night Train" won the Olympic title at the 2010 Vancouver Games. A degenerative eye condition nearly caused me to quit my sport in 2008, but corrective surgery restored my vision to 20-20.
