Five Black Women Make U.S. Bobsled Team
Elana Meyers, Pilot
Elana Meyers has the winning spirit flowing through her veins. As the daughter of Eddie Meyers, former running back for the Atlanta Falcons, Elana began bobsledding six years ago. Similar to the other women on her team, she started out playing a wide range of sports including softball, soccer and track in college. But it was when the Georgia native medaled in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games winning bronze that she realized she found her true calling.
