Briton Donna Creighton switches to bobsleigh
Donna Creighton joined skeleton sport in 2004 from a track and field background. She was a reserve athlete at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and won the 2015 Overall Intercontinental Cup. Donna Creighton competed at five World Championships between 2009 and 2017, with her best result coming in 2011 when she placed 13th in Königssee. Her best finish in Skeleton World Cup was fourth (2010 in Whistler, 2011 in Cesana and 2012 in Lake Placid, respectively). Donna Creighton raced more than 100 times for Great Britain.
“I’ve always had an interest in bobsleigh and I didn’t need much time to sign up for what I know is a big, big challenge,” said Donna Creighton in the BBSA press release. "I’m all for grasping hold of opportunities and making the most of them and, if I hadn’t given this a go, I think I would have been questioning myself a few years down the line. I still have that urge to continue representing the country to try and fulfill that Olympic dream, as that’s what’s missing from my skeleton CV.“ ©RWH2017
