Former Boise State track star Nick Cunningham was named to the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team in the sport of bobsled, as announced today by USA Bobsled and Skeleton.

Cunningham [teamusa.org] represents one of 12 male bobsledders named to Team USA at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea in February.

It's the third Olympic appearance for Cunningham’s third Olympic appearance, tying him with Troy Kemp (high jump; Bahamas; 1988, 1992, 1996) for the most Olympics appearances by a Bronco alum.
