Biography

Dan Money represented Team GB in the four-man and two-man bobsleigh at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The Vancouver Games were Money's first Olympic Winter Games.

Unfortunately after a crash in the two-man competition alongside teammate John Jackson, the team were disqualified from the event, and only managed a 17th place finish in the four-man bobsleigh, alongside fellow Team GB teammates Henry Nwume and Allyn Condon.

Following a regularly recurring trend, Money has a history in track sprinting, capable of running 10.16secs for the 100m. Whilst studying at Sheffield University, he was British University champion at 100m and 200m sprinting. This ability to generate such power and speed made the transition to bobsleigh an appropriate decision.

He once described sport as “running down a hill and then jumping into a tin bath”.
