A Vikings Tie To The Winter Olympics In Sochi


It may be the offseason, but one Vikings player will have his competitive juices flowing full force this week. Vikings defensive tackle Fred Evans is in Sochi, Russia right now, cheering on his sister and the rest of the American contingent competing in the Winter Olympics.

Aja Evans, the younger sister of Fred, is competing in the women's bobsled event for Team USA as a brakeman. She will be on one of three two-person sleds in the women's competition in Sochi.
