Preparing for the Moment: Vonetta Flowers
American bobsledder and REMBRANDT® partner Vonetta Flowers knows that meaningful moments come with big smiles!
Even as a young girl, Vonetta Flowers understood that reaching your goals takes hard work, dedication, and consistency. She also learned that life’s most meaningful moments might turn out a bit different than you plan.
A dedicated track athlete, Vonetta had her sights set high for her running career. She never imagined her path would be paved with ice. After unsuccessful trials on the track, Vonetta tried out for the bobsled team. With a commitment to training, she quickly became the best brake woman in the country. In 2002, Vonetta became the first person of African descent—male or female—to win a gold medal in the winter games.
Today, Vonetta has many reasons to smile, including her loving husband and three children.
