Britain’s Women Crowdfund Their Way to the Olympics

If you see a British women’s bobsled at the Winter Olympics with the words “Powered by the People,” that’s the sleigh of Mica McNeill.

The women’s team was told in September that the GB Olympic team could only afford to finance the men’s team.

So, McNeill went on Twitter and started a GoFundMe page and was able to crowdfund her way to more than £40,000.

Thereafter, they picked up sponsors like UnderArmour and are now on their way to Peyongchong, Korea for the Olympic games.
