Local Man Riding Shopping Cart in Wegmans Parking Lot Recruited for U.S. Olympic Bobsled Team

Webster, NY – A Rochester Native will be joining the U.S. Olympic Bobsled team for the 2020 Winter Olympics after being spotted riding on a shopping cart at a local Wegmans.

Todd Barishal has always been known for his remarkable cart riding skills at the Holt Road Wegmans. “He could get from his trunk to the cart stand in one push,” a Helping Hands member told The InnerLoop Blog. “We knew he was destined for greatness.”

An anonymous security guard at the Wegmans compiled a highlight video of Mr. Barishal’s best cart runs and sent them to the U.S. Olympic Committee.

“The kids a natural. He’s got bobsled in his blood,” said U.S. Bobsled Coach Robert Shledd. “We stuffed the cart with three grown men and Toddy here pushes it like it’s a bowel movement after taking fiber supplements. He just says ‘This is nothing! Try pushing a full cart of Weggies on a Sunday grocery run!’ We have no god damn idea what that means but we love him.”
