Brock Kreitzburg participated in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers mini-camp in 1999 before recruited into the sport of bobsled in 2002.  His superior athletic background and talent has helped him reach great success on the U.S. Bobsled team.  Kreitzburg teamed with Steven Holcomb to claim the 2007 World Cup title in two-man bobsled, and finished second overall in four-man standings.  Kreitzburg won a total of nine medals in the 2007-08 season, including four in two-man and five in four-man competitions.  Kreitzburg teamed with driver Todd Hays to finish seventh in the 2006 Winter Olympic Games, and is returning to competition in the 2009-10 season after taking a year off to recover from hip surgery on his quest for Olympic gold.

ABOUT ME
