It’s #olympicday and as I look back on my career so far, it fills me pride to know every time I stood on that line I represent myself and my country to the best of my ability. Some days my best is top in the world, other times it’s not. I have learned hard work, dedication, sacrifice, Teamwork, friendship, focus, patience, perseverance, I have been humbled a time or two. Sport has taught me passion, leadership, love, respect, and how to stand up for myself and others. My dreams are individual, but I can’t do it alone. My support structure has given me more than I can ever thank them for. It’s because of them I live out my dreams. A village has definitely raised this child. Who I have become throughout my career, and the opportunities that sport has given me are skills I will have for a lifetime. Long after the medals fade, I will look back at this time with admiration for every other Olympian on the planet. We are a family, each journey is separate, but we are all bound by the same drive towards success. This Olympic dream started when I was 7 years old, my goal to go and win a gold medal. that dream was realized on home soil in #vancouver2010 . In 2014 I defended that title as the only womens bobsled pilot in history to do so.... 4 years later 2018 I earned a bronze, and although It wasn’t what I set out to do, I’m just as proud of it as my other medals. The last couple years in my Olympic journey have taught me so much about myself, the process, and being internally happy. I give it everything I have daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. As cliche as it sounds, the journey is what has taught me the most. I can say that as someone who has stood in every position, from the top of the podium to being an alternate and having to watch/ help others from the sidelines. (2006) I love to compete, being in the gym and working my body to the maximum is my happy place. the #olympicdream has given me a sense of belonging. I look forward to what sport has left in store for me, & I can promise that whatever happens I will face each day with the same intensity & fierceness that has gotten me to where I am. The future is unwritten #icaniwill @olympics

Laura Deas | Winter Olympian

This week's #tracktuesday features the beautiful Whistler, situated in British Columbia, Canada, and home of the 2010 Winter Olympics. . ❄ Top speed (women's skeleton) 144.8kph ❄ Corners-16 ❄ Track record (women) 53.10 . Without doubt, Whistler is one of the tracks with the biggest fear factor attached, and for good reason! However, when going well, it is also one of the most fun. With a reputation for huge speed, pressure, and danger, it really demands respect from athletes who slide it . All tracks have different traits that tend to recur from corner to corner, and Whistler's corners all have one thing in common- long, open trajectories where you have to get your 'work' (that is, steers that are effective to set the sled path through the corner) done with confidence. However, due to the way the ice (and the concrete underneath) is shaped it is also really easy to overdo it and either lose lots of time or turn a small problem into a big one! All while travelling at speeds up to around 140kph. At that speed the split-second decision making that skeleton athletes are used to is pushed to the limit, and quite often instincts just take over . The other feature distinctive in Whistler is how quickly you pick up speed from the top, and this is down to the track having the highest vertical drop in the world. The push is short so you don't have many strides to accelerate the sled, but by corner 2 there's a 20% drop which means you are already doing close to 100kph by corner 6. The whole track is 1700m long so plenty more track after that to keep accelerating up to top speed- the highest for a women's skeleton recorded as 144.8kph in March 2019! . All this speed means that by the bottom corners you are also experiencing big pressure, and in the final 'Thunderbird' corner it can be as much as 5G's. You have to try and steer the sled before the main pressure hits you in that situation, as once it's on you are pretty much pinned down until the exit! Having said that, the pressure ontakes are always pretty smooth in Whistler and the track crew takes huge pride in creating some of the smoothest ice there is . 📷 @ibsfsliding . #instadaily #instasports #instavideo #athlete
