Shauna Rohbock is trying to solve a mystery at the Vancouver Olympics, but time is running out on the 32-year-old pilot for Team USA's top bobsled.

Rohbock says she cannot find the right sequence for turns 4 and 5 at Whistler Sliding Center's super-fast course.

"I don't know, I just keep falling out and hitting the walls," she said.

Rohbock, a Mormon from Orem, Utah, and former BYU soccer star, and brakeman Michelle Rzepka in USA-1 are in sixth place after Tuesday's pair of runs.

USA-1's time of 1 minute, 47.09 seconds is 0.89 seconds off Canada's top sled, in first place entering Wednesday's final two runs with a time of 1:46.20.
