Olympic bobsledding saw a North American sweep on Wednesday. The USA women picked up the silver and bronze medals with the Canadians winning the Olympic gold. From the very beginning of the heats, it was obvious that the USA team has some serious speed. Looking to make the podium, all efforts were on bringing home the hardware. According to ABC News on Wednesday, the Americans were edged out by the Canadians by only 0.10 second.

The first USA team to take the silver was Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams in USA-1. Keeping the race tight there was no doubt from the first heat that this pair would be taking home a medal, but some viewers thought it would be the gold. The bronze medal winners also were tough Americans, but not quite fast enough. Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans in USA-2, couldn't be disappointed though as the duo was strong on the course and had the speed to capture a medal.

USA-3 didn't make the podium and fans of Lolo Jones have to be disappointed that she returns to America once again with no medal while capturing the spotlight. The decision to put Jones on the USA bobsled team has been controversial and her results will no doubt offer another discussion on why the athlete was chosen and other athletes were passed over.

Take a look at the Olympic bobsledding team in Sochi. It is great to see the ladies take home the silver and bronze. Go Team USA!
