Hamilton’s Nick Poloniato Has His Best Ever Four-Man Finish in the World Cup!
Canada’s bobsleigh athletes celebrated one of the most successful days in the history of the program, pulling three medals out of the second World Cup stop in Park City, Utah on Friday evening.
Hamilton’s Nick Poloniato, who is driving in just his second year on the World Cup circuit, rocked a sixth-place time of 1:36.89 for his best-ever four-man finish. Poloniato, who placed fifth in the two-man event at last year’s World Championships, was teamed up with Cam Stones (Whitby, ON), Josh Kirkpatrick (London, ON), and Derek Plug (Calgary, AB).
For the first time in the history of the program, Canada celebrated two sleds on the four-man World Cup podium with Team Kripps storming into second spot, while Team Spring placed third. Kaillie Humphries and Melissa Lotholz blazed the path to the podium earlier in the evening when they slid to the silver medal in the women’s bobsleigh race.
Make sure to cheer on top Canadian athlete, Nick Poloniato in the next BMW IBSF World Cup race live in Whistler Mountain from November 20th to 25th.
