In 2016, Joel Fearon became the seventh Brit to run 100m in under ten seconds as he competed in both athletics and bobsleigh.
Fearon took up bobsleigh in 2011 and two years later helped Great Britain win their first four-man World Cup medal in 16 years, when they claimed silver at Lake Placid before also adding European silver the same year.
Sochi 2014 marked Fearon’s Olympic debut and, two years later, he and Bruce Tasker made history as they secured Great Britain’s best two-man result at a World Championships for 50 years, finishing fourth in Igls, Austria.
After specialising in bobsleigh, he helped the four-man team to bronze in Park City in November 2017 and was subsequently selected for his second Games at PyeongChang 2018.
At the Games, Fearon competed alongside Brad Hall in the two-man event, finishing in 12th position before placing 17th in the four-man bobsleigh with Hall, Greg Cackett and Nick Gleeson.
