Congratulations to Newport's Mica Moore
Posted on Monday 26th February 2018
Newport City Council leader Councillor Debbie Wilcox has added her voice to the praise for Great Britain's Winter Olympics women's bobsleigh team.
"We are very proud that Mica Moore hails from Newport and congratulate her and Mica McNeill on their amazing, record-breaking achievement."
The team came eighth in their first Winter Olympics - the best ever finish for Great Britain in that event.
Councillor Wilcox added: "What makes it even more remarkable was that they did not give up when they were dealt the blow of having their funding withdrawn, just months before the Winter Olympics, but set about raising the funds they needed to get to Pyeongchang.
"I hope their determination to realise their dream and compete at the highest level of their sport, no matter what the odds, will be an inspiration to other young people."
