    Johnny Quinn, 30 (Bobsled) -- At 30, Johnny Quinn may be older than the average Olympian, but he's no stranger to competition. This American was a former off-season wide reciever in the NFL, playing for both the Buffalo Bills and the Green Bay Packers. He also had a stint playing on the Saskatchewan Roughriders squad here in Canada, but was cut from the team after suffering an injury in the last game of the 2009 season. Quinn will become only the second NFL player to ever compete in the Winter Olympics. (Photo via Johnny Quinn)
