Nevertheless, Jazmine decided to give bobsleigh a go.
“The first time I got into a bobsled was in October 2007, at Lake Placid. This is renowned as being one of the most difficult, jarring courses in the world. They lent me a mouth guard, helmet and gloves. All the rookies were taken out in a van and shown the bobsleds. We were then shown the body positions. The bobsled itself is made of metal and fibreglass, so we had to put padding in. We then went up to the top of the bobsled track and they said ‘Bon Voyage!’”.
