In 1983, Lois Hollan was one of the first women in the world to drive a bobsled at the Olympic venue in Lake Placid, NY and became an international leader in the advancing of the sport for women. Those efforts led to worldwide competition and the adoption of the Women’s Bobsleigh Olympic event in 2020.
