MICA Moore says she has “lots of things” to think about before targeting the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022.

Bobsleigh ace Moore, 25, is now home in Wales after an impressive Games debut alongside Mica McNeill in Pyeongchang last week.

The duo finished eighth in South Korea to record Great Britain’s best ever result in the women’s event at an Olympics.

Based on how they did in South Korea, many feel a medal could be within their reach in China in four years’ time.

But Moore, who will soon continue her athletics career under the guidance of dad and coach Lawrence, isn’t rushing into committing to another four-year Olympic cycle.

“Four years is a long time away and there are lots of things I need to think about in terms of training,” she said.

“And I’d have to gain a lot of weight to be competitive in the starts and to help us get the best results.

“To go to another Olympic Games would be really cool but I’m very realistic and I understand the work that would have to go into that.”

Moore and McNeill were only able to go to Pyeongchang after raising nearly £50,000 in public donations via a crowdfunding website.

Last September they had been told by the British Bobsleigh & Skeleton Association that their funding was being withdrawn because of an overspend.

“It was quite stressful to lose the funding and have to sort it out ourselves, but it’s swings and roundabouts because we could book our own accommodation and make sure it was perfect for us,” she added.

“By staying in apartments we could cook for ourselves and also afford to pay for extra runs for Mica when we were going to new tracks. In some ways it actually worked out really well for us but, going forward, we don’t really want to ask people to pay for our season, that’s not their job, it’s something we need to get from UK Sport.

“They weren’t able to fund us this season which was unfortunate, but hopefully we have done enough to regain our funding.

“I don’t know how much that will be. It may be less, it may be more, but hopefully we’ll get the funding.”

She continued: “Mica put a lot of work into the crowdfunding and it was mad to think people would support a sport maybe they didn’t know much about because it is a minority sport.

“You wouldn’t think that so many people would get behind it but we’re so grateful that everyone did and it meant we could have the experience of a lifetime.

“And we did deserve to be there because we had achieved all the criteria we needed to and it wasn’t our fault, it was someone else’s, and we’re so happy that people helped us get there.”
