University of Miami alumna and former track star Lauryn Williams will become the first Hurricane Winter Olympian next month.
Williams, who earned a gold medal at Sunday's World Cup races in Austria, earned a spot on the U.S. women's bobsled team that will compete in Sochi, Russia.
A nine-time All-American at Miami, Williams previously made three Summer Olympics as a sprinter. She didn't pick up bobsledding until last July.
She and diver Jose "Chemi" Gil are the only Hurricanes to qualify for four Olympics.
Williams won a gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics as part of the U.S. 4x100m relay team and took home a silver medal in the 100m at the 2004 Athens Olympics. She also captured the NCAA Championship in the 100m in 2004.
