PERSONAL

Nick Cunningham is a Sergeant in the New York National Guard in the1156 ENG CO, Vertical, and is a member of the Army's World Class Athlete Program. Cunningham graduated from Monterey Peninsula College in 2005 and Boise State University in 2008 with a degree in Communications.  While at BSU he was a elected team captain for the track team. When he is not bobsledding, Cunningham enjoys football, track, surfing, and rodeo.  His favorite sliding memory is accepting his first gold medal and standing on top of the podium with the National Anthem being played. Cunningham has made the official switch from the back of the sled to the driver's seat, and has been named as an emerging elite driver for the U.S. program.  Coaches expect Cunningham to be vying for a spot on the national team as a pilot next season.

Cunningham began bobsled in 2008 and was immediately selected as an alternate for World Cup team.  In addition, Cunningham helped push driver Mike Kohn to two gold medals on the America's Cup tour and a silver and a bronze medal at the 2009 National Championships.  During 2009 World Championships, Cunningham helped push driver John Napier to an 11th place finish.
