“MuniSight is dedicated to providing world class service to our clients, and as such, we are really excited to sponsor Janelle as she trains to be a world-class Skeleton athlete,“ MuniSight President Quinten Griffiths says.

Among the most adrenaline-packed sports in the Olympics, Skeleton involves a running start with the skeleton sled, called a “push”, and jumping onto the sled head-first, and face down, to begin the ultra-fast descent to the bottom of a winding ice-track. Skeleton athletes can reach speeds of over 140 km/h with their heads mere centimetres from the ice.1

Alongside athlete blog posts for MuniSight’s blog, Janelle will be sharing a quarterly newsletter on her training and competition progress. Check out Janelle’s Fall Newsletter. You can also follow Janelle on Facebook and Instagram.

MuniSight would like to invite our clients to join us in cheering for Janelle. Go Janelle go!
