Join your host, Winifred Adams, for the next inspiring episode of Making Life Brighter Radio with Olympic Hopeful, Brittany Reinbolt of the US Women’s Bobsled Team.
In this special year-long series following along with athletes as they prepare to make the Olympic Team, find out what makes these people unique and what drives them.
Listen in as Winifred sits down with Brittany Reinbolt in Lake Placid, NY. With a commercial pilot’s license it is no surprise Brittany prefers the drivers seat at 85 miles per hour down the ice shoot for Team USA Women’s Bobsled.
Brittany sits apart from her team with a very convicted and open belief system that steers her each race and along the sometimes challenging climb, to make her dream of GOLD come to fruition.
Before attending a bobsled recruitment camp in March 2011, Brittany Reinbolt was a member of the 2010 women’s national tackle football team and competed in track and field at Winona State University. Reinbolt made the switch from a brakeman to a driver in the 2012-2013 season, and made her debut as a pilot during a December North American Cup in Calgary, Alberta.
Reinbolt is currently enrolled as a student in the Keller Graduate School of Management. When she’s not studying or training, her hobbies include skateboarding and video editing. Her ideal location is, ironically, a warm beach with good surf.
– Rode a motorized scooter 1,800 miles across the country with my sister.
– She is a CFI (certified flight instructor) and also has a commercial pilot license.
– She was a P.E. Teacher and the head girls basketball coach at Augusta High School prior to bobsled.
