Check on the four-time Olympian's competitions here.

BEIJING, China — Four-time Olympian Elana Meyers Taylor was ready to take Beijing by storm on Sunday. The Team USA bobsledder and Douglasville native was looking to add another medal to her name.

After battling it out in three heats of sledding, Taylor worked her way into a medal event Sunday night. Earning a runtime of 4:20.81 in heat four, Taylor locked in a podium spot--earning a silver medal alongside teammate Kaillie Humphries, who earned the gold medal.
