Lolo failed to medal in Beijing and London and hopes to redeem herself with a stab at the Winter Games. Qualifying for the U.S. team is the first step, but she must fight for a spot on the World Cup circuit to earn a ticket to the Sochi Games in 2014, reports EOnline.
She follows in the footsteps of footballer Herschel Walker, the last famous American athlete to transition to bobsledding.
And of course the guys from Cool Runnings.
