Tyson Gay elected not to compete in the opening day of USA Bobsleds national push championships in Canada, getting a little more time to transition from being an Olympic sprinter to someone who runs on ice. Womens Jazz Jerseys .Another sprinter stole the show instead.Ryan Bailey, in only his second week in the sport and first time competing on ice, won the mens brakeman competition Wednesday -- enhancing his chances of making the national team. Bailey won the preliminary championship last month, though that was on dry land and left him with no expectations coming into his first time racing on ice.To get a chance to compete in the Winter Olympics would be amazing, Bailey said. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be possible, so getting this chance is mind-blowing.Bailey was part of the 2012 Olympic team at the London Games, a teammate of Gays there. Gay was recruited to bobsled this summer after the Rio Games, in part by Willie Gault -- the former NFL wide receiver who also was a bobsledder.Gay got to Calgary, which has an indoor facility thats hosting these championships, earlier this week. USA Bobsled said it was decided that it was in Gays best interest to focus on learning Wednesday and not immediately jump into competition.A number of other Olympic veterans, of the Winter Games variety, also got titles on Wednesday.Two-time Olympic medalist Elana Meyers Taylor won the womens pilot title, the eighth start title of her career and the fifth since she left the brakemans seat and became a driver.Its great getting everyone back together on ice, Meyers Taylor said. We train all summer for this. Its what we live for. Its so much fun to be back out there, to see everyone making improvements.Olympic gold medalist Justin Olsen set a record from the drivers push bar to win the mens pilot title, and Olympic bronze medalist Aja Evans returned from a two-year hiatus to win her third womans push athlete national championship.The time off was good for me, Evans said. Theres a lot that goes into the sport and competing on a high level, so the time off gave me a lot of mental clarity and let my body heal up.Olsen made the switch from pushing sleds to driving them after the 2014 Sochi Games.I feel rejuvenated mentally with my new journey as a driver, Olsen said.Competing in the push championships is ordinarily a requirement to be eligible for national team consideration. But that rule doesnt apply to rookie hopefuls, so Gay -- who could compete in other events this weekend -- still is in the mix to compete in team trials next month. It also doesnt apply to injured athletes like longtime USA-1 driver Steven Holcomb, the three-time Olympic medalist who was excused Wednesday because of an injury.Im just being cautious, Holcomb said. I had a slight training mishap a couple weeks ago, nothing major. Cheap Jazz Jerseys .
