Sarah Reid

Sarah Reid will be hard to miss when she makes her Olympic debut at the Sochi sliding centre. While her performance on the track will no doubt impress, leading up to the Games it has been her ‘day of the dead’ inspired helmet that’s been stealing the show. It was after 11 years of dance training that Reid switched over to the adrenaline fueled sport of skeleton. Last season she rose quickly through the ranks of skeleton to finish with World Cup bronze. Sarah looks to keep this momentum going by sliding her way onto the Olympic podium for Team Canada.
