Vermont Guardsman 7th at Lake Placid Bobsled Race

Updating an earlier posting, it's nice to track our military athletes who compete in Olympic sports. 

Even more exciting is to see that Vermont Guardsman Sgt. John Napier back from his combat tour and making solid runs down the ice in the FIBT World Cup bobsled races.  Though, placing out of the medals isn't what most athletes want to accomplish, gaining solid top 10 finishes when having not trained all summer for a winter sport, is quite an accomplishment. 

Hopefully we'll see some better results out of Napier as he gets more comfortable in the sled and he and his brakemen (Laszlo Vandracsek) get more in sync with one another.
