Jean-Nicolas Carriere

"I think the single one thing that inspires me the most is watching someone giving 100% at what they are most passionate about. It is extraordinary to see what a common person can achieve when they are dedicated to a single pursuit" With much reflection after he had a shoulder injury, Jean-Nicolas found within himself a newfound motivation, and a gigantic dream, to try and compete in the upcoming Olympics. After months of hard work and training he tested in an athlete identification camp for Bobsleigh Canada and managed a performance worthy of an invitation to train with the National Canadian Bobsled Team in Calgary, Alberta. Jean-Nicolas has since made the National Bobsleigh Team and will be competing in the upcoming 2012-2013 World Cup circuit. Read the profile >>
