PERSONAL

Elana Meyers began the sport of bobsled in 2007, making the national team her rookie season.  In 2008 she won her first World Cup medal, a bronze with driver Shauna Rohbock.  She followed the performance with a gold medal at the inaugural World Cup in Whistler, Canada.  At the 2009 World Championships, Meyer pushed with driver Shauna Rohbock to win silver, and won the 2010 Olympic bronze medal with pilot Erin Pac in Whistler.  Since the Games, Meyers has moved into the driver's seat, and has been selected by the coaching staff as an emerging elite pilot.  Meyers currently is serving as an Athlete Director on the USBSF Board of Directors.

Meyers graduated from George Washington University in Washington D.C. in 2011 with a master's degree in Sports Management after finishing her B.S. in Exercise Science at George Washington in 2007.  While at George Washington she played shortstop and pitcher for the softball team. Meyers was named to the ECAC Division I softball All-Star team in July 2007 for leading the Colonials to their first ever Atlantic 10 Tournament appearance with a game-winning grand slam in her final home game. In addition to bobsled, Meyers also plays for the Mid-Michigan Ice, a professional softball team based in Midland, Michigan. She is now studying Business Administration at DeVry University.
