U.S. National and Olympic Luge Team Manager

Regardless of the weather, if you are interested in trying

out for the USA Olympic Luge Team, the first face you

will see is Fred Zimny. Zimny, voted the US Olympic National

Development Coach of the Year, lives up to that title

and more. He has traveled over 150,000 miles looking for the

next U.S. Olympic Luge hopeful, trying out countless kids

between the ages of eleven and fourteen on a simulated sled

with wheels. When you look at him you see an encouraging,

disciplined, and focused presence in search of kids with

possibility.

Fred Zimny was a member of the U.S. National Luge Team

from 1979–81 and was the U.S. Team’s men singles alternate

in the Lake Placid 1980 Winter Olympics. Always actively

involved in supporting the U.S.A. Luge effort, he not only became

a head coach of the U.S. Luge Association in 1987, a

position which he still holds, but he has also been the U.S.

Recruitment and Development Manager since 1993.

As team leader for the U.S. Olympic Luge Team in 1998

and 2002, his commitment to the sport accompanied the U.S.

Olympic Team to the Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan and

Salt Lake City, Utah.

If your child has what it takes to fly down an icy track on

his or her back, with control and perseverance, look for Fred

Zimny at the tryouts; with almost thirty years of sliding experience

under his belt, he can spot talent.
