Kristen Bujnowski - Bobsleigh
Western University alumni Kristen Bujnowski is the next big thing on the Canadian Bobsleigh scene. She jumped into a sled for the first time in September, and hasn’t looked back since, making the National team, and now, five months later, she is a 2018 Olympic hopeful. During her time at Western she ran track and also rowed for the Mustangs; 5 years later, she decided to follow her varsity track coach’s advice, and tried out for the Canadian National Bobsled team. Kristen kept fit by training through crossfit and posted amazing times at the Oympic trials.
She has competed in four World Cup races this season where she and her pilot have slid to two 7th and 9thplace finishes. Her coaches say she is loaded with potential, and we’re excited to see her success grow in the coming years!
