Aja Evans

One more set, one more rep. When you're on that stage, you're not just doing it for yourself. It's bigger than you.

- Aja

Life

A Chicago, IL native, Aja has ambition running through her veins. Coming from a long line of athletes, Aja recalls how funny she must have looked training alongside her brother, a professional football player, and his friends. Aja's first venture into competitive sport was as a track & field shot putter.


Performance

During her time at the University of Illinois, Aja became a five-time All-American and three-time Big Ten Champion shot potter. It wasn't until her senior year, 2010, that her coach introduced the idea of Bobsledding. She admits to being terrified her first time down the ice but she didn't let doubt temper her drive. Her first year competing with Team USABS was awarded with a Bronze medal in Sochi. Her title success continued as when placed 5th in 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games.


Mind & Body

The mind of a Bobsled brakeman is to be the push, be the engine. Aja's channels this with her powerful takeoff, on cue strength and ability to be relaxed as possible down the track.
Her ambition and refusal to give up and go home is what ultimately led her to success. When others didn't want to, she went the extra mile and continues to fight her way to the top.
