Aja Evans is an American bobsledder competing at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Sliding down a slick racetrack at up to 90 mph, bobsledding requires a strong constitution and a need for speed. Athletes can be subjected to up to 5 g’s, or five times the force of gravity—the same pressure that a fighter pilot may experience. Strap in tight, and get ready for the ride of a lifetime.
