Bobsledder Jazmine Fenlator Gives Us an Athlete's-Eye View of Her 95 mph Run

"What goes through a pilot's mind going down a bobsled run is a lot of things," Fenlator tells PEOPLE. "Everything is going so fast and is pretty violent, but you want to stay calm and just know you can do your skill and job successfully."
The former collegiate shot put, discus and hammer thrower had never considered bobsledding until her track coach suggested she give it a try in 2007. Fenlator, who grew up in Wayne, N.J., made the switch to the driver's seat after spending several years as a bobsled brakeman and has earned three World Cup medals over the last two seasons. In Sochi, she'll be sharing her sled with two-time track-and-field Olympian Lolo Jones, who added bobsledding to her repertoire this year.
