As you have seen in the news a lot recently, the success of our Olympic heroes are ‘at risk’ if UK government funding does not increase.

Lately, UK Sport has cut ALL funding for the men's 4-man & 2-man bobsleigh team after such a great season.

In January, Brad Hall and Nick Gleeson used a rented sled to secure sixth place in St Moritz, Switzerland, which was GB's best two-man World Cup result for 13 years, then a few weeks later finished 4th at the World Championships to tie Great Britain's best 2-man finish for 53 years! 

After an already hugely successful crowdfunding campaign by Brad of which was needed to hire a two-man sled for March's World Championships, it would be a massive shame to see the future Olympians not be able to complete. 

My aim is to get as many signatures as possible, this will get UK Sport to recognise the turmoil they have left behind but cutting all funding for the hard-working, proud British bobsleigh team and get them funding leading up to the 2022 Winter Olympics.

I must add, this is also the case for the Woman's bobsleigh team who also had an amazing season. Britain's Mica McNeill and Montell Douglas missed out on a medal by 0.04 seconds in the two-women bobsleigh at the World Cup in Altenburg, Germany.
