Inspiring Winter Olympics Moments
Vonetta Flowers: Breaking the Ice
As an aspiring track star from Alabama, Vonetta Flowers fell short of her goal of competing in the Summer Olympics. So she turned to bobsledding instead.
It didn’t take long for Flowers to find success on the ice as a brakewoman. She qualified for the 2002 Games with driver Jill Bakken and made history by becoming the first black athlete to win Winter Olympic gold.
