Melissa Lotholz

Melissa found quick success in the sport of bobsleigh. Competing since 2014, Melissa has earned 2 Overall World Cup titles and 2 runner-up titles, 2 World Championship medals and 18 World Cup medals. In 2016, Melissa made history as part of the first all-women’s team to compete in the 4-man World Cup competition. In 2018, Melissa competed at the Winter Olympic Games, where she finished 7th alongside teammate Christine DeBruin. Following her Olympic debut, Melissa chose to challenge herself by learning how to pilot a sled with the goal of representing Canada at the next Olympics in a new role. In 2020 Melissa returned to the World Cup as a pilot. And, in 2021 Melissa won the first-ever Canadian World Cup medal in the new Olympic discipline of women’s monobob. Moving towards the 2022 Olympics Melissa is working to qualify in both the women’s 2-man and inaugural monobob event.
