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. The women managed to crowdfund enough money to compete during the 2017-18 Bob season. The results earned them a place in Pyeongchang.
Fingers crossed these inspirational young women achieve a personal best!
