Biography

Tony Nash, alongside team mate and brakesman Robin Dixon, won a gold medal at the Innsbruck 1964 Olympic Winter Games in the two-man bobsleigh event; the pairs debut Olympic Games. This was the first two-man bob medal Team GB had won in the history of the Olympic Games. Nash also competed in the four-man event where Team GB finished 12th.

The gold medal victory was achieved after an incredible sporting gesture from Italian rival Eugenio Monti, who loaned a vital spare part after problems wiith the British sled. Nash and Dixon regained the lead on the final run.12/100ths of a second was the eventual margin of victory.
