USA Bobsled/Skeleton: Meet Emily Azevedo

By Molly on February 4th, 2014


CENTURY 21® is proud to sponsor the USA Bobsled and Skeleton teams. Today we’d like you to meet another member of the Women’s Bobsled Team, Emily Azevedo.

Emily hails from Chico, CA. It was her sister who encouraged her to pursue Bobsled. In fact, she handed her a five dollar bill and offered to be her very first sponsor if she could be brave and try out.

Emily’s parents are also a driving force behind her commitment to the sport. She says, “My parents are my biggest inspiration. My mother is a breast cancer survivor and my father has Type 1 Diabetes. Seeing how tough they are makes me want to push forward.”

When people get discouraged, Emily pumps them up and shouts, “I’m living proof that you can do whatever you want in life. I’m a California girl who bobsleds!”
