U.S. Men and Women’s Two-Man Bobsled Teams Won Historic Olympic Medals

Our Michigan BMW dealership wants to celebrate the successful collaboration of BMW engineering ingenuity and the hard work and athleticism of Team USA Bobsled Teams. For more than two years, the USA Bobsled & Skeleton Federation (USBSF) and BMW worked together to redesign and improve the two-man bobsled for use by Team USA at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Last October, a fleet of six new BMW U.S. two-man bobsleds were delivered to Team USA. The new construct replaced a 20-year-old platform. Our BMW dealership is so proud that this collaboration helped Team USA secure three medals in the two-man bobsled competition at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, with the men winning its first medal in 62 years and the women winning both the silver and bronze medals.

The BMW Group DesignworksUSA, the group that worked on the redesign of the two-man bobsled, is honored to be part of this historic win.  Michael Scully, Creative Director, BMW Group DesignworksUSA said “to see both the U.S. men's and women’s teams on the Olympic podium with three medals is both a career and personal highlight, and I'm extremely proud of the athletes' achievements.” This shows that commitment to excellence, innovation and engineering can lead to incredible results.  The brilliant BMW engineers can make the Ultimate Driving Machine for any terrain whether it is an sporty sedan like the 2014 BMW 3 Series or a lightning fast bob-sled. 
 
Once again our BMW dealership wants to congratulate the amazing athletes: Team USA bobsledders Steve Holcomb and Steve Langton on winning the United States’ first medal in 62 years with a bronze medal performance, Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams on winning a silver medal and Aja Evans and Jamie Greubel for taking home the bronze in the women’s two-man bobsled event. Now that the 2014 Olympics Winter Games have come to an end, we wish them a safe return and much earned rest and relaxation.
