Thirty centimeters of snow didn’t stop the Olympic bobsleigh athletes from making it to Montreal yesterday for the Bobsleigh Canada Sochi Team announcement. See how the day unfolded through the tweets of our athletes.

The morning started off with blue skies over the city

The team was ready to go, with bobsleigh pilot Christopher Spring taking the wheel from Lake Placid to Montreal. We caught up with Christopher later who was just as surprised as we were that the team let him (the Australian) drive!

Guess we weren’t the only ones who had trouble finding the venue

Meanwhile, some were more concerned with prepping for their speech

Some pre-announcement selfies

Getting their exclusive Hudson’s Bay jackets

Inspiring speech from Crewman Cody Sorensen

Congrats to all the athletes!
