In Beijing, Great Britain’s bobsleigh of the four-man team, after having to self-fund, feels their sixth-place finish is “like a medal” their Olympic dream.
After Brad Hall’s men finished 17th, UK Sport cut the funding for bobsleigh in Pyeongchang four years ago but desiring; for a re-think, the team is now.
Nick Gleeson stated that “I hope UK Sport takes a long, at us hard look, in 2018, who was also the sled.
Nick Gleeson is 25 years old now and he added that on a personal budget, we have done the last three years that is less than 10% in a year what these guys spend.”
After Saturday’s opening, Hall, Gleeson, Greg Cackett, and Taylor Lawrence had sat sixth overnight two runs on the podium places but could not close the gap.
As the country continued, Germany won gold and silver its dominance of the sliding events on the closing day of these Winter Olympics. In all, German teams have won a precious gold medal, but one of the 10 sliding events.
For Germany, it meant a double-double Francesco Friedrich, who has repeated his 2018 feat of winning the two in successive Games and events of four-man and becomes the first person to achieve this title.
