Bridgestone Olympic Partner Elana Meyers Taylor

Elana Meyers Taylor declared her intention to be an Olympian at the age of nine. However, when softball was removed from the Olympic program in 2005, her Olympic dream was at a crossroads. With encouragement from her parents, Meyers Taylor transitioned to bobsled and charted a new, history-making course. She won bronze in Vancouver as a brakewoman and then silver in Sochi as a driver, becoming the first female bobsled athlete to win a medal in both positions. The 32-year-old is also the first woman to win an international medal in a men’s event and the first American to win a women’s bobsled world championship – which she has now done twice.
