Brief update. More to follow.
The St James Bobsleigh team have just finished 4th in the British Championships in Igls, Austria.
Them kicked off their campaign with their fastest start yet in 6.08 seconds giving driver Lamin Deen the best possible opportunity to put in a good time. He did this in style finishing in 55.45 seconds with a top speed of 121.44 Km/h.
The team sat in 4th after the first run and knew that they had to put in something special to catch 3 time Olympian Lee Johnson.
Although the start time of 6.10 seconds was slightly slower, the load was close to perfect allowing the Bob to carry more speed into the first corners. Lamin put in his best drive with the St James team recording a down time of 55.19 hitting a top speed of 122.35 Km/h.
Anyone who is or has ever been associated with St James Senior Boys’ should be incredibly proud of the boys achievements this week both on and off the track.
They have been an absolute credit to the school and us all.
