Chicago’s very own Aja Evans is heading back to the Olympics after she was named to the Team USA bobsledding squad.

Evans, who won bronze in Sochi with Jamie Greubel Poser in 2014, will once again team up with Poser as she tries to improve on that medal in PyeongChang.

“The women’s team has been stacked with outstanding talent for the last three Olympic cycles and this year is no exception,” USA Bobsled & Skeleton CEO Darrin Steele said in a statement.

Elana Meyers Taylor will also pilot a sled in PyeongChang, teaming up with Lauren Gibbs in the two-woman event.
