Financial services software and consultancy services provider Altus announces today that it is sponsoring Great Britain’s top Bobsleigh crew Team Bobsleigh Brad, led by number one bobsleigh pilot Bradley Hall.
The team of six world-class athletes finished sixth in the overall world rankings last year. Despite this great result, the team continues to be unsupported by UK Sport and self-fund all their competitive endeavours. They compete in the 2-man and 4-man disciplines, however, because of COVID-19, they will primarily compete in 2-man this year until the international racing rules are re-appraised.
Altus Managing Director Kevin Okell commented: “We have a very strong connection to our community and enjoy taking an active part in supporting local charities and sports teams and tournaments. When the team approached us for support, we didn’t have to think long about it. We were completely blown away by their enthusiasm and their energy. They are a fantastic team, and we are delighted to be able to help them. We’re looking forward to cheering them all the way down the ice tracks and hopefully to a podium!”
Bobsleigh Team Brad pilot Bradley Hall added: “We are so grateful for the support that Altus has given us. We have an exciting winter competition calendar to look forward to, and without their support we just wouldn’t be able to continue competing.”
The team is currently training for the world Cup Tour starting on 12th of December 2020 in Innsbruck/Igls, Austria and their season will peak with the World Championships in Altenberg, Germany from the 5th to the 14th February 2021. All their races can be watched on the IBSF Live YouTube stream.
