Veronica Day

Bobsled and Skeleton

HEIGHT 5'6" WEIGHT 135 lbs

Veronica Day's start in skeleton was born from an inside joke with her roommate. While watching the 2010 Olympic Winter Games on television, they joked that they were going to try out for the bobsled team after graduating from college.

While Day didn't become a bobsledder, she did find her way onto a skeleton sled in 2011. Since then, she's impressed the coaching staff with blistering start times.

Day has a long list of accomplishments as a track and field athlete. She is a three-time Southern Conference Champion, nine-time All-Conference honoree, Southern Conference Field Athlete of the Year and recipient of the Stein H. Basnight Most Outstanding Athlete Award by Elon University.

FUN FACTS

- She studied abroad in Osaka, Japan and was a member of the Kansai Gaidai track team.
- She is excited for the first cat cafe to open in Denver.
- She currently own 150 bottles of nail polish. The good news is they're small enough to carry on an airplane.
