Monday Morning Motivation: Mica McNeill & Mica Moore

Mica McNeill and Mica Moore with their bobsleigh

Hands up if you’ve been watching any of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang! Assuming I’ve read the schedule correctly then the women’s bobsleigh starts tomorrow and it’s inspiring to hear that Mica McNeill and Mica Moore will be taking part.

Mica McNeill has been part of the British Bobsleigh programme since 2010, but even though she has been consistently competing at a high-level last year the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association withdrew funding for McNeill and Moore.
