Pierre’s Out


Its been a week since Pierre announced his retirement from coaching the Canadian Bobsleigh Team. I’ve waited for a week hoping he’d change his mind, but its not looking good.

Pierre was an awesome teammate and became a great coach and mentor for me when I jumped into the drivers seat after the 2010 Olympics. Trust me, driving those things at 150km/h can be scary at first, you’re gonna want someone like Pierre telling you how to do it. Its going to be a different world out there without Pierre. Sure if you’re involved in bobsleigh Pierre has probably ripped a strip off you, maybe even thrown a runner or a camera in your direction but thats just part of the passion. It gets the people going. I’m going to miss that.
