Former Western Volleyball player misses chance at Olympics

Bobsled Brakeman Katie Eberling

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- She had a shot at making the U.S. Olympic bobsled team, but former WMU Volleyball player Katie Eberling has just learned that she won’t be going to Sochi.  

She didn't make the team despite years of experience, winning medals at international competitions leading up to the selections, and the fact that one of the women who did make the team, former Olympic runner Lauryn Williams has only been bobsledding since July.

Eberling, who lives in Illinois,  says she is heartbroken.

U.S. Olympic officials had 5 athletes to choose from and only three slots for brakemen, who supply the muscle for the push-off at the top of the runs.
