Mica Moore rejoined the GB Bobsleigh team in the summer of 2021 following a three-year spell away from the sport.

Mica (pronounced Me-kaa) was an Olympian with Team GB in 2018 as she and pilot Mica McNeill recorded the British female result in Olympic bobsleigh history with an eighth-place finish in PyeongChang but she stepped back from bobsleigh later that year to focus on her university studies and subsequent career.

During that time away, she completed a Masters in Sports Broadcasting at Cardiff Metropolitan University and presented for both British Athletics and European Athletics at major events. She also worked in medical sales, while continuing to train at a serious level.

Mica's bobsleigh career began in the summer of 2016 and it started superbly as she picked up a brace of silver medals and a bronze on the North American Cup circuit that winter. She was second with McNeill in her first two races in Calgary and third in Whistler as she claimed a hat-trick of podium places in her first three competitions for GB.

Her World Cup debut saw her finish eighth in Whistler in December 2016 and World Junior Championship gold followed the very next month as she and McNeill became the country’s first female World Junior Champions since Paula Walker and Rebeka Wilson triumphed in Park City in 2011.

Her first appearance at a senior World Championships came in February 2017 when she placed 16th with McNeill in Konigssee, with a World Cup PB of fifth in Whistler and fourth place at the European Championships in Igls following in November and December that year.

Mica has also represented Wales in athletics, reaching the final of the 4x100m at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014. She won bronze over the 100m at the Welsh Championships and silver in the 200m that same year, having also been Welsh Champion over 60m in 2013 and a Welsh silver medalist over 100m in 2011.
