SPOTLIGHT: Elana Meyers Taylor – 2017 Bobsled World Championships

Elana Meyers Taylor is no stranger to success at World Championships, having won a gold and bronze at the event in the past two years. She also took gold at this season’s World Cup race in Koenigssee, a feat she hopes to repeat at worlds.

Meyers Taylor, 32  is a star in the sport of bobsled. She owns a whopping five world medals in the two-woman event – four as a driver and one as a brake-woman. She will race with Kehri Jones for her sixth medal and Jones’ first.

When Meyers Taylor  won gold in 2015 with Cherrelle Garrett, it marked the first time the U.S. ever won a world title in women’s bobsled.  She won a gold medal last month at the world cup in Koenigssee. Next year she will be seeking her third Olympic berth, after winning an Olympic bronze medal in Vancouver in 2010 as a push athlete and then an Olympic silver medal in Sochi in 2014 as a pilot.
