Veronica Day's start in skeleton was born from an inside joke with her roommate.  While watching the 2010 Olympic Winter Games on television, they joked that they were going to try out for the bobsled team after graduating from college.

While Day didn't become a bobsledder, she did find her way onto a skeleton sled in 2011.  Since then, she's impressed the coaching staff with blistering start times and is one of the development program's up-and-coming athletes to watch.

Day has a long list of accomplishments as a track and field athlete. She is a three-time Southern Conference Champion, nine-time All-Conference honoree, Southern Conference Field Athlete of the Year, and recipient of the Stein H. Basnight Most Outstanding Athlete Award by Elon University.
