Walking up the hill we ran into this Polish Bobsledder, his name is Dawid Kupczyk!!!
My sister had knee surgery last fall so here is where she said, "I just cannot walk uphill one more step, she made it from the 16th turn known as the Bowl to turn 11. So I said "ok, bye I'm going to the top if it kills me", I will meet you after it is over!!!!
At about turn 8, I ran into Latvia Bobsledder Daumants Dreiskens, I asked a stranger to take our picture!!!!
A few more turns up the hill I bump into a Czech Republic bobsledder, but never could get his name, and No one was around to take our picture!!!!
I finally made it to the top, I nearly died, remember I was sick with a head cold, I did stop and rest many times!!!!Standing about 5 or 6 people from the starting point, the dressing area was right across from where I was standing and right before my eyes, this American bobsledder pulled off his pants and put on his bobsledding outfit!!!!
