Shauna L. Rohbock (born April 4, 1977) is a soldier in the U.S. Army National Guard,[3] an Olympic medal-winning bobsledder, and former professional soccer player. After retiring from competitions she worked as a bobsled coach at the Utah Olympic Park.[2]

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.[3] In 2000 she joined the Utah Army National Guard and became a member of the National Guard Outstanding Athlete Program.[2] While attending college, she set several BYU 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.[4]

At the professional level, she played for the club San Diego Spirit of the WUSA in 2003.[5]

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.[1]

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.[6]

Rohbock is a Mormon.[7] She is the middle child of seven siblings: five sisters and one brother.[2]
