Former British sprinter to compete in Beijing Winter Olympics

On the 20th local time, the British Olympic Committee announced the list of contestants for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics snowmobile event. Among them, former Olympic sprinter Montel Douglas was selected for the women’s tandem snowmobile event. She will be the first woman to represent the British team at both the Summer and Winter Olympics.

Douglas, 36, will partner with helmsman Mika McNeill to compete in the women’s sleigh ride at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

She was a British women’s 100-meter sprinter at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Douglas switched to snow sports in 2016.

“Going back to the Olympics again after 14 years,” Douglas said. “You’re never too old, never too late. You should keep dreaming, dream big.”
