Olympic gold medalist in Torino in the 3000m... Wust was the surprise winner, competing in her first Olympic event at age 19, and upsetting teammate and favorite Renate Groenewold... Also took bronze in the 1500m... Followed up with a stellar 2006-07 season, winning the 1000m and 1500m World Cup titles, but has struggled since then... Ended the 2008-09 season with a silver in the 1500m at Single Distance Worlds... Also was third at 2009 World Allrounds... Says she is staying positive despite some disappointing results.
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.
