LAKE PLACID - Upon graduating from Boise State in 2007, former Bronco track standout Nick Cunningham bought himself a graduation present.

It was a trip to Lake Placid to try out for the U.S. bobsled team. Looking back, he recognizes "if you want to do anything great, you have to take risks."

As he gears up for his third Olympic appearance, Nick used that same mindset assembling a team - one that he believes could be the best in the world.
