Davis Chevrolet | Giving and participating in our Airdrie and area community
Airdrie, AB resident Brianne Tutt started speed skating at 11, was coached by Catriona LeMay Doan at 12, and competed for ten years, representing Canada at three Junior Worlds, three Junior World Cups, and four Senior World Cups. All this was leading to her ultimate goal – to be an Olympic speed skating hopeful for the 2014 Winter Olympic team.
Less than a year ago, the 21-year-old was terribly injured when another skater crashed into her from behind while doing a practice start. She was left with a fractured skull, two fractured vertebrae in her neck, broken collar bone, broken rib, hearing loss, and Bell’s Palsy.
Thinking her skating career and Olympic dream might be over, Brianne set her mind on recovery and started the slow road back to skating again. On Jan. 2, 2014, she put everything she had into the Olympic Trials and on Jan. 22 was named to the Sochi Winter Olympic Team!
Davis Chevrolet GMC Buick is incredibly proud to support Brianne’s dream and will be cheering her on in Russia.
