Lauryn Williams’ goal this winter was to bring home a medal and now she’s the  fifth Olympian to ever medal in both the Winter and Summer Games. Williams and her bobsled partner Elana Myers, won the silver medal in the two-woman bobsled event this evening in Sochi.

According to Yahoo News, the two women lost to the Canadian team by .1 seconds.  Williams already owns two gold medals from the 2012 London Games as a member of the U.S relay team.

Williams was encouraged to try out for the team by Lolo Jones, who hasn’t fared well at all in the Winter Olympics games.  Williams’ Team USA teammates, Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans came in third, bringing home the bronze.

Congrats to Team USA!
