Mike Dellemann

Bobsled and Skeleton

Height:   6'1" Weight: 194 lbs.
 
Mike Delleman's aunt learned about the sport of bobsled through 2002 Olympians Darrin and Dan Steele and encouraged her nephew to try out.  Delleman decided to give it a try and attended a combine event in the summer of 2010.  The coaching staff persuaded Delleman to start in the sport of skeleton after reviewing his sprint times, so Delleman joined a skeleton school in Lake Placid and rose to success in only his first season sliding.  He's quickly become one of the fastest push athletes in the nation.

Delleman earned a BA in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he also competed as a decathlete.  He enjoys outdoor activities such as waterskiing, hunting and camping, and brews his own beer.  Delleman is the son of Anne and John, and has an older brother, Andrew, an older sister, Maggie, and a younger sister, Annie. Currently studying at the Keller Graduate School of Management, earning his Master's of Business Administration in Project Management.
