The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee says it is trying to help world champion bobsledder Kaillie Humphries obtain a way to compete in this winter’s Beijing Games. But it stopped short of predicting if the effort would be successful. Humphries is a three-time Canadian Olympic team member and two-time Olympic champion. She’s entering her third season as part of the U.S. bobsled team. She’s married to an American and lives in San Diego but is still a Canadian citizen. She needs either a U.S. passport or special permission from the International Olympic Committee to compete at the Games.
