Former Greenhill School pupil Bruce Tasker helped the GB Bobsleigh four man team to bronze at the World Cup in Park City, America, in the early hours of this morning.

Along with driver Brad Hall, Joel Fearon, and Greg Cackett - Tasker formed part of the quartet that became Britain’s first Bobsleigh World Cup medalists since 2013, when Tasker himself won silver at Lake Placid with Fearon, John Jackson, and Stu Benson.

Prior to that, you have to go back to 1997 to find another British Men’s Bobsleigh medal on the World Cup circuit, when Sean Ollson guided GB to bronze in La Plagne.

With Hall at the wheel, the team produced start times of 4.80 and 4.79 seconds as they finished just 12 hundredths of a second behind race winners Germany - clocking 1:35.56 seconds over two legs.

And their achievement was made more remarkable by dint of the fact they had not raced together since February.

For Tasker, born in Lawrenny, the medal is another big accomplishment in a career that has already seen him compete in the coveted Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014.

And now he and his teammates will surely have another podium finish in mind at the 2018 Winter Olympics, that take place in South Korea in February.

But pior to that, the quartet head to Whistler, Canada this weekend for the thrid round of their World Cup campaign.
