The Bobsledder Of Palos Hills

"With all the attention Olympic track stars Lolo Jones and Tianna Madison attracted when they tried bobsled pushing this winter, it was easy for last year's breakout athlete, Katie Eberling, to be pushed into the background," Phil Hersh wrote in the Tribune recently.

"That didn't bother the former Western Michigan volleyball player from Palos Hills, who had won a World Championship bronze medal in 2012, her rookie season as a sled pusher.

"As the coaches tried different pairings throughout the World Cup races this season, Eberling just kept quietly going about her work and wound up back in the top USA sled with driver Elana Meyers for this year's world championships in St. Moritz, Switzerland."

Let's take a look.
