Canadian-born, Tanith Belbin received her U.S. citizenship just in time for the Torino Games, where she and Ben earned the silver medal...Witty, honest and introspective, Tanith has clear thoughts on how she feels about competing for Team USA in Canada..."The U.S. is where I've made my career. It's my home, it's my future and it's my entire adult life. It's where my friends and family are now," she says.
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.
