Humphries _ one of the best pilots in the history of her sport _ has traded her red and white Canadian gear for red, white and blue U.S. apparel. No longer racing for her homeland of Canada, Humphries is now officially a member of USA Bobsled’s national team after a nearly two-year saga that saw her not only claim that she was verbally and mentally abused by a Canadian coach to the point where she no longer felt safe but that her now-former national team simply discarded her.

Holcomb is getting one last victory celebration. A long overdue one. More than 2-1/2 years after his death _ and almost six years removed from the bobsled races in question _ Holcomb and his team are about to finally be presented the silver medals that they should have received at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Holcomb and teammates Steven Langton, Chris Fogt and Curt Tomasevicz were originally awarded bronze medals, which were eventually upgraded after a long probe of the Russian doping scandal that now overshadows those games.
