What a Rollercoaster (or Ice Track) Ride of Emotions!
On what was to be a milestone in their Olympic journey, Team Polo had their bronze medal sadly taken from them. Nick Poloniato and Lascelles Brown reached their first ever World Cup podium this past Saturday at the IBSF BMW World cup in Innsbruck, Austria, only to get disqualified for faulty equipment. Their sled had suffered crashes earlier in the season and, a result of the repair work, was disqualified by the material jury for being 4mm too narrow in the middle of the opening.
In the four-man bobsleigh, Team Polo finished 16th out of a field of 26 bobsleds.
The team wishes to thank all of their sponsors for their support as they travel to Altenberg, Germany for a week of practice on their track before Christmas.
