USA LUGE Athlete Sydney Axton is preparing for the 2013-2014 winter training season. Sydney is currently racing a sled that is over 20 years old. She is raising money to order a new race sled custom made for her in Latvia. In her relatively short luge career, Sydney has been climbing the ladder quickly. She moved up to the USA Luge Candidate team for 2013-14 and has her sights set on making the Junior National team. She has won Gold in the Empire State Games, a Silver during day two of the 2012 US Nationals Park City Utah, and won Gold in two races in Lake Placid this past season. In addition to that she had the honor of training in both Germany and Austria last season with many of her current teammates. Due to the teams limited funding , junior athletes are given hand me down equipment and are responsible for most of their own training costs until they make the National teams. These costs are even higher due to the upcoming Olympics, as most of USA Luge's funds are being used for the upcoming games in SOCHI Russia. Custom built race sleds are built for her exact measurements and take months to build. They are very expensive, but are extremely fast and will surely help her get to the next level! Be a part of TEAM SYDNEY and help support an Olympic hopeful!
