IamA rookie Bobsled Pilot. AMA!
Hey all! My name is John Macchione and I am a rookie Bobsled pilot. So basically I'm just an athletic crazy person. Originally from New Jersey, but moving out to Park City, Utah on January 1.
Edit 1: I'm going to keep a running list of the basic info that people ask about to see if that helps.
Olympic hopeful for 2018, 2022, and 2026 Olympic Games
Brakeman are awesome brave souls
Edit 2: When I say ask me anything, I mean anything! No one asks how my day is going :(. Edit 2.1: Thanks /u/Burnt_Couch!
Edit 3: Someone asked how do we make money, and the truth is that we don't (at least through Bobsled). It is largely based on donations and sponsorships. If you would like to support me, this is my page I am collecting donations at
Edit 5: Time for me to get ready for track practice. I'll still be answering questions as long as people keep asking, so keep asking!!!
Edit 6: Back from practice!....does anyone have food? I basically am eating everything in my house. Ok, I'm actually eating a sweet potato, but close enough.
Edit 7: Good morning all! Apparently I'm still on the front page of /r/IAMA, so I'm still here! Keep asking questions!
