Congratulations to multi-athlete Bradley Hall who will be the pilot of the British bobsleigh in the two-man and four-man events at Beijing 2022.

A gifted all-round sportsman, at one stage Brad Hall looked set to follow in the footsteps of another of Crawley’s favourite sons, Daley Thompson, by excelling in decathlon.

A Talent ID session led him first to skeleton, then bobsleigh, in which he has excelled as pilot in Britain’s two-man and four-man teams in recent years. Hall competed in both disciplines at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang and the following March earned Britain’s best World Championship two-man finish for 53 years by taking fourth alongside Nick Gleeson.

Regular World Cup medals have followed, including six across two-man and four-man in the 2021/22 campaign.
