    Sable Otey, a former heptathlete at George Mason University, first heard about bobsled from her godbrother and national team push athlete Christopher Kinney. The Memphis, Tenn., native had previously trained for the U.S. Olympic Trials in track and field, but had turned her attentions to motherhood in 2011.

    “I never thought I’d have another opportunity to represent my country on an athletic level,” she said. But she found bobsled and was hooked.

    Before her bobsled career, Otey was a conference champion in the heptathlon at George Mason, where she received her B.S. in Exercise Science. She also earned a Master’s Degree in Education and teaches Physical Education in Memphis when she’s not bobsledding.


    - She has (ironically) never liked roller coasters, the cold or heights.

    - She talks really fast when she’s excited.

    - She loves to laugh.
