Brittany Bowe is an American long-track speed skater competing at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Athletes compete at speeds of up to 36 mph, and champions can be determined by split seconds. Skating against g-force at high speed can cause unimaginable muscle pain, but for Bowe, the thrill of the race makes it all worth it.
