Brian Shimer played football at Morehead State University, where he was a wide receiver and running back and graduated with a degree in industrial technology. After graduation he turned to the bobsled, using his athletic talents as a great pusher first, but he soon turned into a top driver. At the 1993 World Championships, Shimer won a bronze medal driving the four-man sled. In 1997 he won two more bronze medals at the World, in both the two-man and four-man. Shimer competed in five Winter Olympics and finally came through for an Olympic medal in 2002, winning another bronze in the four-man at Salt Lake City. He has since become the coach of the US men’s bobsled team. Shimer was chosen to carry the US flag at the Closing Ceremony of the 2002 Winter Olympics.
