Bree Schaaf and Ingrid Marcum: 4th at Park City, World Cup Bobsled

“Good news to report,” Ingrid Marcum told IronMind®: “Bree Schaaf and I finished 4th overall in the first World Cup race of the season in Park City, UT, finishing just .11 seconds out of the medals!”

Marcum, a USA national Olympic-style weightlifting champion who does double duty as a bobsledder, pushed for USA III, driven by Bree Schaaf in this first race in the 2009 - 2010 World Cup Bobsled season.

“Two German sleds took the top 2 spots,” Marcum said, “and the USA II sled with Erin Pac and Mickie Rzepka won bronze.   The field included many Olympic and World Cup medalists, so this was a strong opener for the U.S. team.”

“The team is now in Lake Placid,” said Marcum.  “We we won't find out until today who will be selected to race in this week's World Cup race.”
