What happened in Whistler?

Mica McNeill and Mica Moore achieved a personal best finish of fifth in Whistler last time out. The confidence boosting performance sees them tied sixth in the overall World Cup standings.

The pair were only able to compete on the World Cup circuit this season after raising over £30,000 through crowdfunding following an overspend by their governing body.

GB had slightly less fortune in the 2-man bobsleigh as Joel Fearon & Bradley Hall finished 13th, while Bruce Tasker and Nicholas Gleeson crashed out in the first heat.

They lie 23rd and 26th respectively in the overall standings after the first three World Cup events.

Where to next?

The build-up to February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang City continues with the European swing of the Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup.

Winterberg in Germany plays host to December's first meeting, with the action then moving on to Innsbruck in Austria before the Christmas and New Year beak.

In the new year, Europe hosts three more events - Altenberg and Konigssee sandwiching the event in St Moritz, Switzerland, all of which are in January.

Get Inspired: How to get involved with Bobsleigh?

Bobsleigh, like sister-sport skeleton, relies on the start for much of what follows. You need to push the sled down the track before jumping in - logic dictates that the faster you push it, the quicker you'll go once you're on-board.

That means the push-start is vital and bobsleigh athletes train hard to be exceptionally strong and quick. Current GB bobsleigh athletes have set faster 100m times than many dedicated 100m runners, for example. So if you sign up for bobsleigh, you can expect an intense workout alongside sitting in a technologically advanced barrel while plummeting down an ice slope.

British Bobsleigh offers a membership package which gives members the chance to compete at the British Championships, alongside a Try it! page with more details.
