The Douglasville native and her partner Lauryn Williams, of Miami, Fla., won the silver medal after a bumpy final run and fell out of first place. They had nearly a quarter-second lead after the first two runs on Tuesday, and .11 seconds entering the final slide.
The tandem needed a time of 58.03 seconds to beat the Canadian sled piloted by 2010 gold medalist Kailie Humphries. Meyers had her slowest of four runs in the event with a time of 58.13, according to live-stream reporting by NBC.
The Canadian team finished with an overall time of 3 minutes, 50.61 seconds. Meyers and Williams clocked in at 3:50.71.
Fellow Americans Jaime Greubel and Aja Evans finished third with a time of 3:51.61.
Meyers, who won bronze in the 2010 Winter Games as a brake woman, won the silver as a pilot. Her sled hit the side of the track several times in the final run.
It was a rollercoaster Olympic experience for Meyers and Williams, who crashed Saturday in a practice run, and needed quick repairs to prepare for the races.
The final runs were live-streamed by NBC, and scheduled in the primetime TV lineup Wednesday night.
