Lake Placid, N.Y. (October 6, 2022) – USA Bobsled/Skeleton (USABS) announced today the 10 athletes selected to compete on the USA Skeleton National Team during the 2022-2023 season. 

“We are very excited about this talented roster of skeleton athletes that will represent Team USA this season,” said Director of Skeleton Programs Eric Bernotas. “I’m looking forward to standing alongside each of these athletes as they pursue excellence for themselves and for this team as they strive for the podium.”

Five-time Olympian Katie Uhlaender (Breckenridge, Colo.) headlines the women’s World Cup team. She will be joined by 2022 Olympian Kelly Curtis (Princeton, N.J.) and newcomer Hallie Clarke (Brighton, Ontario). Clarke began sliding for Team Canada when she was 14-years-old. She finished second overall in Intercontinental Cup standings for Team Canada last season at the age of 18, and this will be her first season racing for Team USA and in the elite World Cup circuit.

2022 Olympian Andrew Blaser (Meridian, Idaho) and team veteran Austin Florian (Southington, Conn.) have been selected to race in the World Cup tour for the men’s team.

The athletes selected to compete in the Intercontinental Cup are Sara Roderick (Truro, Mass.), Kendall Wesenberg (Modesto, Calif.) and Mystique Ro (Nokesville, Va.) for the women, and Dan Barefoot (Johnstown, Pa.) and Hunter Williams (Carnegie, Pa.) for the men. 

The USA Skeleton National Team was named based on the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) rankings from the 2021-2022 season. 

The World Cup returns to the U.S. this season for the first time since before the COVID-19 pandemic. The team will travel to Whistler, Canada to train before the first World Cup starts at the end of November on the 2010 Olympic track. The World Cup tour will then head to Park City, Utah and Lake Placid, N.Y. for the second and third stops of the season, respectively.
