Jan. 15, 2018

Team USA Release
Former Boise State student-athlete Nick Cunningham was named to the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team in the sport of bobsled, as announced today by USA Bobsled and Skeleton.

Cunningham represents one of 12 male bobsledders named to Team USA at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea in February. Cunningham, a Monterey, Calif. native, will serve as one of three pilots for the USA sleds for both two-man and four-man bobsled.

The PyeongChang Games mark Cunningham’s third Olympic appearance, tying him with Troy Kemp (high jump; Bahamas; 1988, 1992, 1996) for the most Olympics appearances by a Boise State alum. The 31-year old Cunningham competed in two-man and four-man bobsled at the 2010 Vancouver and 2014 Sochi Olympics.

He has compiled four top-15 finishes between two-man and four-man bobsledding at the Olympics; 12th (two-man) and 13th (four-man) in 2010, and 13th (two-man) and 12th (four-man) in 2014.

Cunningham graduated with a B.A. in Communications from Boise State in 2008. Cunningham was a three-year member of the Boise State track and field team, leading the Broncos to the 2006 WAC titles at both the indoor and outdoor championships while specializing in the 200 meters.

The PyeongChang Games kick off February 9 and will conclude February 25. Bobsled will be contested February 18-25, and competition will be held at the Olympic Sliding Centre in the PyeongChang Mountain Cluster.
