The men’s team of Steve Holcomb and Steve Langton won a bronze medal, the 1st medal in the event since 1952, thereby ending a 62-year medal drought. The women’s team of Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams won silver and Aja Evans and Jamie Greubel won a bronze medal in the two-man bobsled event.
“Being part of this historic U.S. bobsledding milestone has truly been an honor,” said Michael Scully, Creative Director, BMW Group DesignworksUSA. “To see both the U.S. men’s and women’s teams on the Olympic podium with three medals is both a career and personal highlight, and I’m extremely proud of the athletes’ achievements.”
With more than 2 years collaboration with the USA Bobsled & Skeleton Federation (USBSF), BMW applied its engineering and design expertise to redesign a new two-man bobsled for Team USA at Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
In October 2013, 6 new BMW US two-man bobsleds were delivered to Team USA completing of a project that replaced a 20-year-old platform.
