FRANKFORT, Ky. — Sgt. Dallas Robinson of the 2123rd Transportation Company, based out of Richmond, Ky., has been selected to represent the U.S. Olympic men’s bobsled team that will compete at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Robinson is one of five Soldiers in the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program to have this honor and will be competing officially in both the two-man and four-man bobsled at the Olympics with driver Nick Cunningham. The two-man race will be Feb. 16th and 17th and the four-man race will be Feb. 22nd and 23rd.

“I’m humbled to get to have this opportunity,” said Robinson. “It’s an honor and a privilege to get to serve, but pales in comparison to what my brothers and sisters are doing in combat right now overseas.”
