Zach Lund Biography
Zach Lund was born March 22, 1979 and is an American skeleton racer who has competed since 2000. He won a two bronze medals at the FIBT World Championships with one in 2007 (men's skeleton) and one in 2008 (mixed bobsleigh-skeleton team event).
Lund grew up skiing at Alta, in Utah, where his parents owned a day care center. He skied competitively and says his initial goal was always to make it to the Olympics as a downhill racer. When he was 13, Lund's dad took him to luge tryouts in Park City and he earned an invitation to camp in Lake Placid. During that same time his mom was diagnosed, so Lund chose not to go. But when a new track was built in Park City for the 2002 Games, he began training in luge there and made the junior national team. Disatisfied with his progress, he tried skeleton at the suggestion of Wendell Suckow, an American luger who finished sixth at the Nagano Games. Lund picked up the new sport quickly and made the national team for the 1999-2000 season.
After missing out on the last two Olympic Winter Games, Lund is finally set to make his debut in Vancouver. "It's almost overwhelming," Lund says of the wait. "I feel like, how many times have I had to overcome stuff that's not within my control? It's been a very hard road, to say the least. My Olympic dream has been very hard, and I feel like I've been to two Olympics already. But sometimes life takes you on an interesting road, and I try to take it as positively as I can and just keep having fun."
