Stephanie Drost Thunder Bay firefighter chasing Olympic dream of competing on bobsleigh team
Stephanie Drost likes a challenge. She was one of the first two female firefighters hired by Thunder Bay Fire Rescue in 2016, and helped shatter that glass ceiling for the next group of women. Now the 27 year old has set her sights on an Olympic-sized undertaking. Drost was one of seven athletes selected to compete for a spot on Canada's women's bobsleigh team. Currently, Drost is training with the team in Whistler, BC. She told the CBC's Matt Fratpietro all about it.
