  2. Enjoying every crazy moment

    Elana Meyers

    The Sochi Olympics was an incredible experience, and I'm thrilled to the moon (and back!) with the effort we put out. The whole USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation did amazingly -- our best since 2002, and then we had a home-field advantage. So to co...

  6. Winning big at home

    Elana Meyers

    I was very nervous going into Friday's World Cup race in Park City, Utah, because Wednesday's training had not gone well at all. It was strange: I was feeling OK driving that day in training, but my times were really slow. I didn't know what was ...

  7. Holiday blues

    Elana Meyers

    Being away from friends and family is one of the hardest parts of being an elite athlete. Sure we struggle financially and have to push ourselves to do crazy things physically sometimes. And we can't always eat everything we want to. But it's especia...
