Shauna Linn Rohbock (born April 4, 1977) is a retired Olympic medal-winning bobsledder, former professional soccer player, and is a staff sergeant in the Utah Army National Guard.[4] After retiring from competitions she worked as a bobsled coach at the Utah Olympic Park.[3]

Early life[edit]

Rohbock was raised in Orem, Utah, and is a graduate of Orem's Mountain View High School and Brigham Young University, where she studied recreation management.[4] She graduated from BYU with a Bachelor of Science in 1999.[5] She is the middle child among seven siblings, and has five sisters and one brother.[3] Rohbock is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[6]

While attending college, she set several BYU Cougars women's soccer records, scoring 95 goals in 368 shots during her 90-game career there. Her 95 goals places her sixth (as of 2006) on the NCAA career scoring list.[7]

In 2000 she joined the Utah Army National Guard and became a member of the National Guard Outstanding Athlete Program.[3]

Soccer career[edit]

At the professional level, she played for the San Diego Spirit of the Women's United Soccer Association in 2003.[8]

Bobsleigh career[edit]

Rohbock competed in the bobsled at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, winning silver in the two-woman event with teammate Valerie Fleming. Rohbock's best overall finish in the Bobsleigh World Cup was second in 2006–2007 with Fleming. She won her first career World Cup win at the Calgary race, followed by a second win at the World Cup held at Park City, Utah on December 8, 2006. She delivered a 48.73 second run that shattered the Park City track record previously set by Jill Bakken in 2002. Rohbock and Fleming has also won bronze medals at the World Championships in 2005 and 2007. Rohbock has competed in bobsled since 1999. At the 2009 world championships in Lake Placid, New York, she won a silver medal in the two-woman event with Elana Meyers, then won a bronze in the mixed team event.

Rohbock was named to the US Olympic team for the 2010 Winter Olympics on January 16, 2010, where she finished sixth in the two-woman event.[2]

She coached the Brazilian men's bobsled team at the 2018 Winter Olympics, a role she combined with a position as part of the coaching team for the United States squad.[9]

In May 2018, President Donald Trump appointed Rohbock to be a member of his Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition.[10]
