2018 Winter Olympics: Green Beret Nathan Weber says USA Bobsled team ready to ‘kick ass’ | Fox News

Must Read

Nathan Weber says he was just starting his sprint workout for the day when an anti-mortar gun near him began thundering at Bagram Air Base, lighting up the sky with a spectacular explosion and thwarting another attempted attack from Afghan insurgents.

As the fragments of the mortar fell around the Green Beret, who was training to make the U.S. Olympic bobsled team, he suddenly felt a rush of adrenaline – and, without pausing his timer for a second, Weber decided to keep the workout going.

And Weber’s determination has paid off. The 31-year-old Colorado native, also a Sgt. First Class in the U.S. Army, is set for a sprint down the track at the Olympic Sliding Center in South Korea, representing America at the Winter Olympics, in what he says is a “surreal experience.”
