Skeleton | USA
Morgan Tracey is an elite Skeleton athlete who represented Team USA in numerous international tournaments. Morgan played Soccer at Mercyhurst University on an athletic scholarship, where she led the team to Sweet-16 and Elite-8 playoff berths. Upon graduation, Morgan joined the Americorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), the domestic equivalent of the Peace Corps, where she discovered a love of wildland firefighting and ultimately earned a spot on an elite Interagency Hot Shot Crew. As the lone woman on the team, Morgan spent five years fighting fires across the country while simultaneously studying law and passing the Ohio bar exam in 2010. While studying for the bar exam, Morgan learned about the Olympic sport of Skeleton. She postponed her legal career to chase her Olympic dreams, while it would still be possible. Morgan competed for Team USA for seven years and won numerous national and international medals. She states her proudest accomplishment was being awarded the “Randy Price Memorial Award for Sportsmanship” by her teammates. Morgan’s passion for service and leadership was recognized by President Obama at the White House by being honored as a 2012 Champion of Change. She recently became the Team Operations Coordinator position for USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation and hopes to help her former teammates find success in the upcoming Olympics.
