Have your say

CRAIG Pickering has been selected to represent Great Britain at the Bobsleigh World Championships – just over a month after taking up the sport.

The 26-year-old former sprinter finished 19th alongside pilot John Jackson on his World Cup competitive debut last weekend, but it was enough to convince the national selectors of his ability.

The former European Indoor 60m silver medallist will now represent his country in the two-man event at the World Championships in Switzerland later this month, with the hope of qualifying for next year’s Winter Olympics in Russia.
