Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read my page. I am over the moon that there are people out there who wish to support me on this journey, and ultimately help me achieve my dream of competing at the 2022 & 2026 Winter Olympics in bobsleigh.
Many people like myself before I joined the sport have only every head of bobsleigh through the film Cool running’s, and no before you ask I don’t have a lucky egg!!
Bobsleigh is a high intensity sport reaching speeds of up to 150km/h And as part of my 2022 Olympic dream sliding forward I will be trying to compete in both the two-man and the Monobob disciplines.
I was first introduced to the sport of bobsleigh in the summer of 2014 when I was asked to trial at the University Of Bath for a new and exciting sport called Monobob which was being intorducted to the 2016 youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer. Coming from the sports of rugby and kickboxing and competing at international levels already I was excited to take on my new adventure.
• Within my first season of Monobob I was ranked NO.2 in world at the end of the racing reason of 2014.
• For my second reason leading into the 2016 youth Olympic Games I was rank No.1 in the world.
• Youth Olympic Bronze medal at the 2016 Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer.
• Closing ceremony flag bearer for YOG. https://www.teamgb.com/news/kelsea-purchall-selected-as-team-gb%27s-closing-ceremony-
My Goals are to compete at the Olympics in Beijing (2022) and Milan (2026)
With zero funding available for women’s bobsleigh, my first goal has to be to raise sufficient financial support to compete on the world circuit this winter season.
Your support means the world to me and will go towards the costs of travel, accommodation, race kit, sled hire and medical cover.
