    GB bobseligh training weekend

    6/7/12

    Push track. Working on the hit and first 15m. Keeping the sled behind for 3 strides before pulling through shaved 5/100ths off a 15m

    I pushed the fastest 15m, which had been my weaker part previously. 1.966 - 2/100th of the current squad best.

    7/7/12

    AM - Track. Wall drills, med ball throws and bounds from a block. Heavy sled dragging with ropes, mimicking the pull through.

    PM - Push track. Learning to use the side handles and load.

    8/8/12

    AM - Push track. Hit and first 15m.

    PM - Side handles and loading.

    SIDE HANDLE LOADING 4-MAN BOB

    Ok guys, Big update!

    Last weekend were the final trials to make the 'long-list' GB Bobsleigh Squad, and the first time development athletes pushed against the existing squad. Top 10 on the push track qualified for October on-ice crew selection in Latvia. Top 6 also qualified for September training camp in Switzerland.

    I came 5th and qualified for both. I pushed 3.54 which was disappointing. My PR puts me joint second in the push track rankings.

    GB Bobsleigh has also secured full UK sport funding this year and so both trips are fully funded.

    Again I'm a step closer to Sochi 2014!
