Australia’s bobsledders were in action in Germany at the Konigssee European Cup Races.
In the women’s monobob, which will make its Olympic debut in 2022, Breeana Walker won silver against a stacked field of World Cup pilots, only 0.39 seconds off the winner, Christine De Bruin from Canada. Walker was ecstatic at the result after initially struggling to come to terms with the difficult course.
“I found the track fun but extremely challenging, and a podium finish seemed out of reach,” Walker said.
“But I stuck to the plan and hoped things would click at the right time, and they did! I couldn’t be happier.”
Walker also paired with Jamie Scroop in the 2-person bobsleigh, finishing 10th in the first Konigssee Europa Cup and 9th in the second event the following day.
Jackie Narracott kicked off her World Cup season, finishing 10th in the at Winterberg, Germany. Narracott’s second run was scorching, the 7th fastest of the entire competition, highlighting her strong form for the upcoming season.
