Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton Slides into Montreal in Search of Canada’s Next Olympic Heroes
Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton —National Team athletes and coaches to lead recruitment camps at McGill University, July 7—
MONTREAL—Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton will continue its nation-wide search to build its talent pool of athletes leading to Beijing 2022, with a stop in Montreal on July 7.
Coined #Tracking2022, Montreal-based National Team athletes, Catherine Medeiros will join coaches to help lead athletes in the region, 18 years of age and older, through a series of physical testing drills – from sprints, jumps and throws – in search of the next generation of talent who are #ALLIn.
The Montreal camp will be held in the Tomlinson Fieldhouse on July 7. Medeiros, who got her start in high-performance sport as an alpine skier before being recruited to bobsleigh where she was a brakemen on the National Team, and has now jumped into the driver’s seat, will be on-hand during the athlete warm up at 10 a.m., and for testing that will take place at 11 a.m.
The event is open to all athletes in the region for a nominal fee of $20
Some of Canada’s best bobsleigh and skeleton athletes, who have combined to win 13 Olympic medals in the sport’s history, have been recruited from football, track and field, rugby, lacrosse, mountain sports, skiing, volleyball, cycling and rowing.
Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton would like to invite media to attend the recruitment camp in an effort to build a better understanding of the sport of bobsleigh and skeleton, while gaining a greater appreciation of the training and skill necessary for these sliding sport athletes.
