Jesse Lumsden Bobsled Career

Every athletes dream is to represent their country at the international level the Olympics being the pinnacle of all competitions. When I was asked to test for the Canadian Bobsleigh program in the spring of 2009 I jumped all over it for two reasons:

1. I am Canadian! To wear the maple leaf at World Cup events and walk the walk of Olympians was an opportunity of a life time.

2. The cross training of the sport would carry over to my sport of football. Pushing a 400 pound sled with power, speed and ferocity. I can't think of a better way to simulate any type of short yardage or goal line situation for a running back.

Join me and see first hand my training methods, competition and results. Experience what it will take for me to reach this next milestone.
