Biography

The only member of the bronze medal winning British four in 1998 not to serve in the armed forces, Courtney Rumbolt was originally a sprinter and won a bronze medal in the 4x100 m relay at the 1988 World Junior Championship. After failing to gain a place at the Barcelona Olympics he made the move to the world of bobsleigh but missed out on selection for the 1994 Winter Games. Rumbolt was a member of Mark Tout’s British number one crew up until Tout was banned following a positive doping test in 1996 and kept his place when Sean Olsson took over as pilot. The team’s bronze medal in 1998 was the first bobsleigh medal for Great Britain since 1964.
