NORWALK, Conn. - Feb. 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Local professional athlete, Andy St. Fleur competed at the Western Regionals Skeleton race in Utah on February 5th. He will be back in Utah at the end of March competing in slide school team trials where he will be evaluated by the coaches.

Andy St. Fleur originates from Norwalk, CT. He attended Western New England University where he played football. After his graduation, he was pursuing a professional football career when his extreme speed caught the eyes of the recruiters for the U.S. Olympic Bobsled and Skeleton teams. Andy has attended many sliding camps and has dedicated his training to his new endeavor over the last couple of months. He has competed at an extremely high level as a rookie and has outperformed athletes who have been training for years.

"This was an event for great exposure to race and compete against veteran and rookie sliders", said St. Fleur. "This experience has provided me valuable lessons for future competition"

The Western Regionals is a race for anyone wanting to experience what a "real" professional skeleton race feels like. Men and women from all over attended this race to try their luck at skeleton and race alongside veterans of the sport. Andy was pleased with his performance running a 51 on his first attempt, outrunning some of the veterans.

The United States Olympic Skeleton team that is representing Team USA in Beijing is one lone racer, Andrew Blaser. This is the first time that Team USA has only sent one male skeleton athlete to the Olympics. Blaser is a rookie, ranked 28th in the world, who beat out veterans like Austin Florian and John Daly. Andy was able to train with Blaser at sliding camp and hopes to make the US team.
