At 28, Kirk Kilgour was one of the best volleyball players in the world. Blond-haired, blue-eyed and muscular, the Van Nuys resident had led UCLA to two national championships in the 1970s and was an avid surfer, skier and basketball player. In 1976, he earned a position on the U.S. Olympic volleyball team. But six months before the Games began in Montreal, Kilgour took an ill-fated leap off a springboard while coaching an Italian volleyball team in Rome. When he landed, he snapped his neck.

Katie Eberling laughed when she first saw the private message sent to her Facebook account in December 2010. Olympic bobsledder Elana Meyers, who won a bronze medal at the Vancouver Games earlier that year, had written a note asking if Eberling would be interested in trying out for the U.S. team. It didn't matter that Eberling's knowledge of the sport was largely limited to the plot of "Cool Runnings" and a few races shown on television during the Olympics. Meyers cared only that the suburban Chicago native was a collegiate volleyball star who had been named to the National Strength and Conditioning Assn.
