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.

This Thursday get ready to be INSPIRED! Katy Gaby recorded her Grammy Nominated album, Hymns from Wichita Ave, with only 60 percent lung capacity and she sounds like and angel. Her story is inspiring and humbling.
Dr Scott lost half his tongue to cancer and continues his life-long career as a vocal coach inspiring his students one by one to be their best and deliver from the heart.
He can sing better with half a tongue than most with chops!
Diagnosed with incurable muscle and lung diseases, Katy was inspired to record the songs that lay closest to her heart before potentially losing her ability to sing. She recorded, Hymns from Wichita Ave, with only 60% lung capacity.
The simplicity of a great record can be heard throughout this Grammy contender, Hymns from Wichita Ave. “These songs go back to my childhood, when I was just four years old, singing and playing at a little church in Fort Worth, TX. The church was on Wichita Ave and I have some very fond memories of that place” says Katy.
“Producing this album for Katy and encouraging her to deliver the best possible during her battle with illness is a true testimony to her endurance as an amazing artist,” says Grammy award-winning producer, Chuck Ebert. “She stepped up to the challenge and we captured a moment in time that is truly special.”
Enjoy a time when music was simple, piano and a voice, just singing a song that makes you smile!
