"Athlete Jared Firestone of Hollywood earned Israel’s first-ever podium finish in the sport of skeleton when he won a bronze medal at the IBSF (International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation) North American Cup in Park City, UT."
“He comes to us with a pretty impressive sprint background. He’s probably our first and only true sprinter. He comes from a track and field background and we’ve never had an athlete like that before competing for us, so we’re excited about that. As he was part of the U.S. development program, he’s not learning this sport, so he’s actually ready to jump in and compete. We’re super pleased.”
