Because until recently there was no such fellowship. There was a dearth of Irish Toboganists.

That all changed with Desmond working as a doctor at Southhand University Hospital in Essex, England. However, this young athlete had to pay for her own Olympic dream.

She’s always on her mind, ” she always does, Desmond said. Her biggest goal was actually the Olympic Games in Milan and the Cortina de Ampezo 2026. Now the Olympic dream came true four years ago. The 24-year-old will also receive special honors in Beijing.

Because at the opening ceremony, Desmond was chosen as the Irish flag bearer. “It’s a great honor (…) to put it into words. It has been my lifelong dream to represent my country at this high level, but in a few days I will lead the team to the stadium. I appreciate every second of this experience,” Desmond wrote on Instagram.
