Lauryn Williams returns to bobsled

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Lauryn Williams isn't done with bobsledding after all.

Williams, one of five people to medal in different sports at the Summer and Winter Olympics, was announced Monday as a returning push athlete by the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation.

Williams considered retirement after the Sochi Olympics, which capped her first bobsled season.

The USBSF is holding its push championships Thursday and Friday and Williams is expected to compete. Push championships are the official opening to the annual selection process for the national team.

Williams, a former University of Miami track star, teamed with Elana Meyers Taylor to win bobsled silver at the Sochi Games. She's also won gold and silver medals as a sprinter at the Summer Olympics.

On-ice training in Lake Placid is expected to begin next week.
