Calgary (RWH) Melissa Lotholz from Canada is the winner of the Women‘s Monobob race in Calgary (CAN). At the Canada Olympic Park, the former push athlete relegated her teammates Kori Hol and Cythia Serwah (both CAN) to second and third place respectively.

Melissa Lotholz was, amongst others, push athlete for pilot Kaillie Humphries and celebrated several victories and podium finishes with her in the BMW IBSF World Cup. After the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, where Melissa Lotholz was seventh with Christine de Bruin, the Canadian announced her switch to the pilot seat.

In July 2018, the International Olympic Committee IOC decided to include Women's Monobob in the Olympic program. The Monobob women will make their first Olympic appearance at the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing (CHN). ©RWH2019
