Feb. 15 U.S. Olympic Bobsled Team official training quotes 

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (Feb. 15, 2014): The U.S. Olympic Women’s Bobsled Team took their third and fourth official training runs at the Sanki Sliding Center today, while the U.S. Olympic Men’s Bobsled Team took their final runs before two-man competition begins at 8:15 p.m. tomorrow night. Here are some of their reactions:   

Jamie Greubel (Newtown, Pa.)   

How she’s approaching her training: “You get a good feeling and build confidence if you put together a good run, and it is OK if it is not the best run. You just have to be confident and know you have thought about every section of the track.”   Steven Holcomb (Park City, Utah)   How confident he feels about racing tomorrow: "It is very confusing, you see some sleds hit in places and it doesn't slow them down and others will have a good looking run and are slow. There is not much that I can do now, we are racing tomorrow and I am just going to drive the lines that I have been driving."   

Cory Butner (Yucaipa, Calif.)   

What he expects from the race: “This is a very technical track, a race of who is the cleanest. Our goal is always to medal. We have all been testing and working together- me, Nick, Holcomb and the coaches-trying to figure out what will run the best here.”
