Bobsled and Skeleton
HEIGHT: 5'11" WEIGHT: 175 lbs
Stephen Garbett played baseball and football growing up and became interested in the sport of skeleton in 2010 when he was in the hospital for two weeks after his appendix was removed. He said he "realized after this incident how precious life is and that I needed to do the things that I enjoy. We don't know how much time we have, so live life to its fullest, don't take anything for granted and enjoy everything you do."
Garbett was watching the 2010 Olympics while hospitalized and he decided that he really wanted to try that sport. He said he knew if he started immediately he would not finish college, so he finished his education before submitting an athlete resume on the USA Bobsled & Skeleton website.
Garebett has a B.S. in Sports and Entertainment Management from University of South Carolina. Learn more on his website, www.stephengarbett.weebly.com.
