Biography

Originally a rugby player, Gomer Lloyd turned to bobsleigh whilst a soldier with the British Army’s Queen's Dragoon Guards serving in Germany. A crew member for his first three Olympics, Lloyd graduated to piloting the bobsled in his fourth and final appearance where he recorded his best finish of 10th place in the two-man event at the Sarajevo Games of 1984. He was the first British bobsledder to compete at four Winter Olympics. After retiring from competition and from his military career the ebullient Lloyd remained in the sport as a coach. In this capacity he helped the British women’s team win the World Championship in 2009. He also worked as a national team coach for Canada, Italy, Monaco, and Russia and, at the time of his death from cancer in early 2016, was helping the South Korean team prepare for a home Olympics in Pyeongchang. In his last races as coach at the beginning of the 2015-16 season he helped the Koreans win their first ever World Cup medals.
