Driving toward the Olympics

Door closes, window opens.

A broken leg suffered in a Hamilton flag football tournament five Boxing Days ago kept Nick Poloniato from attending any CFL training camp as a free agent.

"But it eventually got me into bobsledding," says the 29-year-old former St. Jean de Brebeuf and Bishop's University star.

Gridiron to the track: Canadian bobsled pilot Nick Poloniato turning heads

Nick Poloniato was so used to delivering blows on the football field that he never expected to be knocked over by bobsled.

A standout defensive back in university, Poloniato had designs on attending a CFL training camp when his dreams were dashed by a broken leg.

Pilot Poloniato celebrates with win

Nick Poloniato officially made the jump to Canada's World Cup bobsleigh roster late last month, becoming the program's third pilot alongside Justin Kripps and Chris Spring.

He instilled a little more confidence in Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton's decision with a pair of podium appearances in North American Cup action here in Whistler last week. Poloniato took a win in two-man action on Nov. 24 with Timothy Randall and a third-place in four-man the next day with Randall, Derek Plug and Keenan Macdougall. In the second four-man race, Poloniato took fifth with Plug, Macdougall and Daniel Sunderland.
