In our latest series of episodes of MetCast, we’re looking at the Winter Olympics and exploring how expertise and research from Manchester Metropolitan University's Institute of Sport is influencing sporting performance and supporting healthy living.
In this episode, we talk to Adele Nicoll, MSc Psychology graduate, former sport scholar and current British bobsleigh reserve.
Adele started as a ShotPut athlete until an impressive training video on Instagram in 2020 led her to be scouted by the British bobsleigh team. Sixteen months later, Adele is now a Bobsleigh World Cup silver medalist and is part of the British team at the Winter Olympics as a reserve.
She talks about her journey from the shot put field to the bobsleigh track, her experience so far, how she did all of this while studying for her degree and her hopes for the future.
