Vonetta Flowers Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Vonetta Flowers booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. Olympic gold medalist, Vonetta Flowers, was born on October 29, 1973 in Birmingham, Alabama. Vonetta Flowers is an American bobsledder and athlete. On February 19, 2002 Vonetta Flowers became the first African American women to win a Gold Medal in any Winter Olympic sport. She was also the first American woman to win a gold medal in bobsleigh. Vonetta and her racing partner, Jill Bakken, won the gold medal in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Park City, Utah.

Flowers was a star sprinter and long jumper at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and originally aspired to make the U.S. Summer Olympic Team. After several failed attempts, Flowers turned to bobsledding, and found success as a brakewoman almost immediately. At the 2002 Winter Olympics, she, along with driver Jill Bakken, won the gold medal in the two-woman event, becoming the first black person to win a gold medal in the Winter Olympics. After the Salt Lake City Games, Flowers gave birth to twins and took some time off from the sport. In 2003, she returned to competition with new driver Jean Prahm. Flowers and Prahm competed in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, finishing sixth.

Flowers also won a bronze medal in the two-woman event at the 2004 FIBT World Championships in Königssee. She retired from competition after the 2006 Winter Olympics.

Vonetta Flowers resides in Helena, Alabama with her husband, Johnny Flowers.
