Canadian Olympic bobsleigh hopefuls de Bruin, Bujnowski unfazed by China’s Omicron surge


Christine de Bruin can’t wait for the chance to travel to Beijing and compete at her second Olympics. The veteran bobsleigh pilot wants to show the world she and brakewoman Kristen Bujnowski are serious medal contenders for Canada.

De Bruin also wants to be in a city where she isn’t not concerned about contracting coronavirus.

“We did our [Olympic] test event in Beijing [in October] and it’s the safest I’ve felt all season because we got tested constantly and there was a bubble [environment] there,” de Bruin told CBC Sports over the phone this week from St. Moritz, Switzerland, site of this weekend’s final Olympic qualifier and season-ending World Cup event.
