Dr. Jennifer Welter
What did you think after your very first bobsleigh/skeleton ride?
Just sit down for a minute, it's gonna be fine.
Who was the most influential person in your sporting career?
My dad. He was the one who introduced me to sports as a child and has supported me ever since, always in the best way he could, to get me into my best "sport self" possible.
What do you do to calm your butterflies while you compete?
Nothing, if you don't have butterflies before a race you are doing something wrong, I need them to perform a best as I can. If they get too overwhelming, I picture myself as a superhero like Wonderwoman or Captain Marvel and know that there is no reason to be that nervous, I can do this!
Do you have a favourite motivational quote?
The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. (Vince Lombardi)
