Monday Morning Motivation: Mica McNeill & Mica Moore

19 Feb

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 Bobsliegh and Skeleton Association withdrew funding for McNeill and Moore. The women managed to crowdfund enough money to compete during the 2017-18 Bobsleigh season. The results earned them a place in Pyeongchang.

‘You’re funding the men, not the women? What? Why?’

Bobsledder Mica McNeill: ‘We hit the crowdfunding target . . . I was in tears’

Fingers crossed these inspirational young women achieve a personal best!
