U.S. Bobsled Team tryouts July 18

Tryouts for the U.S. Bobsled Team will be held Saturday, July 18, at 10 a.m. at the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns. Male athletes over 18 years are invited to try out for the chance to compete in the 2009-2010 bobsled season. Tryouts will test athletes’ speed, strength, agility and explosiveness with 60-meter sprints, a vertical-jump test, a medicine-ball toss and a 15-meter sled pull. Qualifying athletes will receive the opportunity to sign a one-year development deal, allowing them to compete against the best bobsledders in the world. Registration begins 30 minutes prior to the event. For more information, visit http://www.myspace.com/usbobsled.
