TMA introduces Japanese women to Western men for dating, romance, love and marriage. 2017 by Global Village Media Co. A decorated inline skater, Brittany Bowe was inspired to try speed skating after watching the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. The Florida native made her Olympic dream came true when she competed in Sochi, but struggled in the competition with the rest of her teammates and didn’t earn any medals.
In the years since, Bowe set a world record and won six total medals at the 2015 and 2016 World Single Distance Championships. Speed skating isn’t Bowe’s first sport—before she stepped onto the ice, she was a world champion inline skater and a college basketball player. Her skating career began at 8 years old, when she attended a birthday party at a local roller rink and saw an inline team practicing. By her late teens, Bowe had collected world championship golds in both road and track inline skating, but speed skating had caught her eye. My inline skating coach, Renee Hildebrand, and I went to SLC to watch the Olympics together. But she put her Olympic dream on pause to pursue another goal: playing Division 1 college basketball. Bowe, who was coached by her father growing up, played basketball for four years at Florida Atlantic University.
As she neared graduation, the lure of the Olympic dream found her again. For as long as I can remember, my dream has always been to be an Olympian. It wasn’t until watching the 2010 Winter Games that I realistically could drop everything and pursue my dream. It was my last semester of college,” Bowe said. I was sitting on the couch with my roommate watching some of my friends and competitors from the inline world walking in the Opening Ceremony, racing, and standing on the podium. At this time, my college basketball coach was helping me find an agent to pursue a professional basketball career.
I had a meeting with my coach soon after and told her that I’d decided to set my basketball career aside and I was going to move to Salt Lake City and become an Olympian. She moved to Utah in July 2010 at the urging of Jessica Kooreman, a short track skater. The two are currently roommates in Salt Lake. My first memory on ice skates was actually in the middle of the short-track rink during the national team’s practice hour.
Hey, just come out to the short track. They’re gonna be skating some slow relays. And I didn’t make it out onto the track. I can tell you that. I was stuck in the middle there, scared to death, and it was one of the most intimidating experiences of my life. But once I got out to the long track, I found my home out there.
A little bit more space to open up some speed. Bowe started competing on the World Cup circuit in 2011, a little over a year after first stepping on the ice. She began winning World Cup medals during the next season, with her first major breakthrough coming when she won 1000m bronze at the 2013 World Championships. I could compete with the best in the world and really had a shot to do something special with my career. Despite being relatively new to speed skating, Bowe was pegged as a medal contender entering the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Not only did she have a world championship medal and multiple World Cup victories on her resume, Bowe had broken the 1000m world record just months before the Sochi Games.
However, Bowe and the rest of the U. 13th in the 500m, 14th in the 1500m and sixth in the team pursuit with the U. Sochi 2014 is still fresh in my mind. Bowe quickly rebounded from the 2014 Sochi Olympics with two outstanding seasons in which she claimed back-to-back titles at the World Sprint Championships and six total medals at the 2015 and 2016 World Single Distance Championships. First, she became a two-time world champion at the 2015 Worlds in Heerenveen, the Netherlands when she finished first in the 1000m and 1500m races. She also earned a silver medal in the 500m.
In 2016, she won another 500m silver and picked up a pair of bronze medals in the 1000m and 1500m. However, her winning streak was cut short by a concussion sustained during the summer of 2016. During a training session, she collided with a teammate and the lingering concussion symptoms forced her to sit out most of the 2016-17 season. What I thought would be a few weeks recovery time has turned into 8 months,” she said in the spring of 2017. I have been struggling with post-concussive syndrome for months, which has caused vast vestibular issues and autonomic dysfunction I tried to make something of my season this year—juggling rehab and training in hopes of competing at the World Championships and defending my World Sprint title. I was able to lace my skates up for one competition this past year, where I earned a bronze medal in the 1000m—the first and only 1000m I was able to skate this past year.
