    Plan is for Greg to make his debut tomorrow. It’s crunch time in Olympic Quals, so no pressure.

      Greg Rutherford made his debut in the British B sledge with Lamin Deen. 17th place finish, better than many for that team this year. Greg was not quite impeccable, took a little more than average time to get loaded. I believe we have the points to send two Four-Men sledges to Beijing, but it's a question of finance.....which makes me think that the presence of Greg is meant to solve that particular problem.

        Unfortunately Lamin Deen & therefor Greg, just missed out to Italy for a place - not really Greg’s fault, there were some bad weeks before he was involved. Montell Douglas goes in the Women’s - will be one of only very few to do the Beijing 2008-2022 double.

          Just one of two athletes to be doing the Beijing double along with perennial Olympian Jaqueline Mourão from Brazil who is at her 5th Winter Games (mainly Cross Country Skiing but also Biathlon at Sochi) and also has 3 Summer Games (all in Mountain Biking, dating back to Athens 2004) on her CV.
