Dawn Richardson Wilson, hailing from Ghana but raised in Edmonton, Alberta, never envisioned herself in the world of Bobsleigh. Despite starting her athletic journey with basketball and track and field, her high school coach recognized her potential and urged her to try out for a bobsledding program. This decision ignited a remarkable journey that led her to become one of Canada's top athletes, representing her country in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. Dawn's presence as a Black woman in the Winter Olympics is significant, highlighting the under-representation of Black individuals in these games due to the high costs associated with winter sports. Her participation not only increases visibility but also serves as a role model for young girls who see themselves in her achievements.
