Once a pusher (sled pusher, that is) for Pierre Lueders, the team finished in fifth place at the 2010 Olympics. But Hawaiian-born Justin Kripps is now in the pilot’s seat. With a distinguished background in track at Simon Fraser University, the one-time personal trainer weighs in at more than 200 pounds; built for bobsleigh.

Justin and teammate Jesse Lumsden created this hilarious fundraising video: We Push Stuff.
