Medal(s): Silver (2010)
Prior to coming away victorious at the 2010 Winter Olympics in bobsledding, Shelley-Ann Brown was a young'n recruited by the University of Nebraska on a track and field scholarship as a hurdler. Brown eventually took the offer, earning a Bachelor of Science in Biological Studies and English while also garnering All-American honors for her work on the track.
However, in 2007, the Canadian bobsleigh team recruited Brown and in only three short years, Shelley-Brown went from a track star to standing on the podium, alongside her teammate Helen Upperton, with a silver medal wrapped around her neck. Not a bad deal.
