Joel Fearon, like many others, converted to bobsleigh from sprinting, taking up the sport in 2011. Fearon plays a vital role in achieving the fast push start essential for the team and his sprinting career saw him compete in the London 2012 Olympic Stadium at the Anniversary Games in 2013.

With his focus now very much set on bobsleigh, Fearon alongside teammates John Jackson, Bruce Tasker and Stuart Benson won GB Bobsleigh’s first World Cup medal in 16 year when they claimed silver in Lake Placid in Dec 2013. They also placed fifth place at the 2013 World Championships in St Moritz missing out on a medal by 0.07seconds. They also placed fifth at the Olympic test event in Sochi.

The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games marked Fearon’s Olympic debut, where the GB bobsleigh team were amongst the top teams in the world.
