Six former University of Saskatchewan students are trading in Huskies green for maple leaf red as they head to Sochi, Russia representing Canada at the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games.

One of those individuals is bobsledder Graeme Rinholm (BSc'10).

While attending the U of S, Rinholm, from Medicine Hat, Alta, was a member of the Huskies track and field team, successfully balancing his studies and sprinting as a Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Academic All-Canadian.

After an horrific crash in Germany in November 2011, Rinholm returned to competition in 2012 as a member of Canada 2 on the World Cup circuit.

Rinholm's plans are to continue his education—after pursuing his Olympic dreams.

We were unable to reach Graeme for comments.
