Olympic gold medallist Tomasevicz joins USA Bobsled and Skeleton as director of sports performance

Olympic gold medallist Curt Tomasevicz has been appointed as director of sports performance at USA Bobsled and Skeleton (USABS).

In his new role, the 40-year-old will be responsible for developing strategies to support athletes from recruitment to retirement.


He will work closely with head coaches and performance staff to draft and execute the USABS high performance plan, develop annual schedules and lead sports science, technology and research projects.


Other duties will include working closely with the USABS Athlete Advisory Council to identify priorities to further support bobsleigh and skeleton athletes to achieve their goals.

"I'm extremely excited to be working with USABS again," Tomasevicz said.

"My passion for the sliding sports hasn't faded since my days as a competing athlete.

"I hope to use my athletic experiences as well as my education to reach and sustain an environment of competitive excellence in skeleton and bobsled for the USA."

Tomasevicz won Olympic gold in the four-man sled piloted by the late Steven Holcomb at Vancouver 2010.

He also won silver at Sochi 2014 and nine World Championship medals, including three golds.

Following his retirement after Sochi, he remained as a member of the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) Athlete Advisory Council, and as an athlete representative on the USABS Board of Directors.

He also served as a member of the USABS Selection Committee, on the USOPC Ethics Committee and on the USOPC Research Steering Committee.


His last position was assistant professor of practice in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.


"We are excited that Curt has rejoined the team in a new capacity," said Aron McGuire, the USABS chief executive.



"I'm confident that his experience as an athlete, his continued involvement with USABS and the USOPC, his education, and his work at the University of Nebraska, will align with the responsibilities of the role."
