Bobsledding couple, Jamie Greubel and fiancé Christian Poser, are in Sochi waiting for their Olympic event to begin. Jamie Greubel is competiting for the United States, while future husband Christian Poser is competiting as a brakeman for Germany. And for both, it is their first time competing in the Olympics, something Jamie Greubel believes is very important.
One very special part of this whole experience is that I am able to share this accomplishment with my fiancé, Christian Poser… To realize this dream at the same Olympics is something we will cherish for the rest of our lives together.
The couple will most certainly be cheering each other on, as Jamie Greubel’s women’s 2-man competition is set for February 18th and 19th, and Christian Poser’s men’s 4-man competition will be held on February 22nd and 23rd. Christian Poser, however, will be there to support Jamie Greubel in more ways than one, as she pointes out.
Overcoming injuries, financial obstacles, the loss of my mom and many other struggles along the way have made this accomplishment an incredibly meaningful one.
But, the soon-to-be married couple will be competing against each other at this year’s Olympics. While ultra competitive Jamie Greubel is a driver for the US team, German-born breakman Christian Poser is representing Germany. Hopefully, a little competition will not come between this boyfriend and girlfriend, who always pose happily together before the cameras.
