This week we are crushing on Phylicia George!
Phylicia George is an Olympic athlete, a wellness ambassador, and a motivational speaker, and that’s just a peek at her resume. She has the rare distinction of being both a summer and winter Olympian, reaching new heights in both bobsledding and track and field, and earning bronze medal for her efforts.
She began her journey to the Olympics in 2011, making the world championship team for international track and field. She competed the London and Rio Olympics before taking up bobsleigh in 2017.

Off the track(s), Phylicia is known for her sense of style and her tenacious nature. She’s a holistic living advocate, and works to inspire those around her, especially young women, with her signature grace, style, and humor. Talk about crushworthy!
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
One of the first things I notice about a potential love interest is their smile. I love to laugh and I love being around people with a sense of humor. Someone with a great smile is definitely something I find attractive.
What is your definition of romance?
Romance to me is about savoring your partner and everything that comes with the gift of an intimate relationship. It’s about truly getting to know another person and opening up yourself to vulnerability. It’s acts of kindness and all the little things to show you care
What is your ideal first date?
My ideal first date is visiting a new restaurant with great ambience, great food, and hours of great conversation.
What’s your instant deal breaker?
For me, an instant dealer breaker is being rude or inconsiderate. And that could be directed towards me or to others. If I see someone treating other people poorly that’s an instant turnoff.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
Be yourself. Don’t try to impress others by being something you’re not. Authenticity is key and the right person will appreciate you for everything you are.
