What is Skeleton? 

Skeleton is a winter sliding sport that takes place on the same track as a bobsled. An individual lays on their stomach on a sled going head first reaching up to 80mph, and steers using their bodyweight. Being fast, strong and mentally tough are integral to success. I am ruthlessly dedicated to one day making it to the world’s biggest stage – the Olympic Winter Games. Every dollar donated goes directly towards helping me reach my full potential. I am looking for people who want to be a part of my Olympic gold medal journey!
