John ‘Jacko’ Jackson was Team GB's first choice bobsleigh driver at the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver and Sochi.

In Vancouver he placed 17th but, four years later, he posted a fifth place finish alongside Stuart Benson, Bruce Tasker and Joel Fearon.

Their time over four runs was just 0.11 seconds off a medal, Britain's best result since bronze in 1998.
