What did you think after your very first bobsleigh/skeleton ride?
I went down with a brand new driver and I'm pretty sure we hit every single wall possible from a Damen Start in Calgary. We got to the bottom and I had the biggest smile on my face and instantly knew this was the sport for me.
How did you get into bobsleigh/skeleton?
After finishing my University Basketball career and taking a year off of school and sport, I missed being an athlete. I knew Bobsleigh was a sport you could start as an older adult, and I got in touch with the provincial program to ask how to try out. I fell in love with the sport and have been working my way up ever since.
