Everyone had a tough training week here as we all got used to this new Olympic track. I got on well, even though I had my very dodgy moments and near crashes! When race day came I enjoyed myself knowing that if i work hard this following summer and winter I may find myself here again come February 2010!


This is what a typical load looks like. I have to sprint and push my sled and then dive on and get into my position as quickly as possible. The sled can weigh anywhere from about 27-32kg for women so they are very heavy to then push with one arm. I do most of my training for the push in the summer where I train at Bath University. There we have a specially designed track which allow bobsleigh and skeleton to practice.
