Greenville firefighter-turned-bobsledder makes US team again

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — A Greenville firefighter has made the USA Bobsled National Team again.

The Greenville News reports ( that 29-year-old Casey Wickline was named one of the veterans to the 2015-16 squad Monday.

Wickline earned a spot on one of the three sleds that make up the national team. He’s scheduled to leave Saturday for Park City, Utah, for testing. The top two teams will depart for Germany in November to begin World Cup competition.

Last year, Wickline teamed with two-time Olympian Nick Cunningham in the two-person race. He also teamed with Cunningham, Sam Michener and James Reed in the four-person race.

Wickline worked all summer for the Greenville City Fire Department while training in anticipation of his return to bobsledding.
