I’m Aja Evans and I push a sled on ice very fast… How can something so hot be so cold? AMA!
I’m a bobsledder for Team USA (yes, like “Cool Runnings”) and my name is pronounced “Asia” like the continent (and 9 times out of 10 if you’re a Steely Dan fan then you already knew that). I’m from the Southside of Chicago and in my spare time I enjoy documentaries on Bigfoot, aliens, and #SharkWeek in July. I come from a super athletic family; from my brother who played 8 years in the NFL to my uncle Gary Matthews who goes by “Sarge” in the MLB. I‘m currently in Calgary, Canada gearing up for Team Selections for the upcoming Olympic Year. I won a shiny Bronze Medal in the 2014 Winter Olympics, and I’m trying to upgrade that to GOLD in 2018 in Pyeongchang. AMA!
