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. Tony 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 with the British sled. Tony, who also competed four years later in Grenoble, and Robin regained the lead on the final run.12/100ths of a second was the eventual margin of victory.
