#Beardmode receives boost for four-man at Sochi

#Beardmode receives boost for four-man at Sochi

By Asif Hossain

SOCHI, Russia – The #Beardmode phenomenon has received a boost ahead of Saturday’s opening runs in the four-man Olympic bobsleigh.

Justin Kripps – who has gained a loyal Twitter following under the hashtag #Beardmode thanks partially to his facial mane – has shown to be the most effective bobsleigh pilot on the Olympic track at Sanki.

Kripps, in his Canada-3 sled, was in fourth place after the first three runs and went for broke in the final before finishing sixth.

With this in mind, the coaches of the Canadian bobsleigh team have made some changes to the lineups in the three Team Canada sleds.

The announcement was made on Bobsleigh Canada’s Facebook page, with the following sentiment:

“These difficult decisions have been made by both the coaches and teams with the best interest of Canada and the Canadian Olympic Team.”

There are four runs in Olympic bobsleigh. Run four on Sunday will determine the medallists, though due to cumulative times for standings, every trip to the track is crucial.

Here are the teams:

Canada-1

Chris Spring (pilot), Tim Randall, James McNaughton, & Bryan Barnett

Canada-2

Lyndon Rush (pilot), Lascelles Brown, David Bissett, & Neville Wright 


Canada-3

Justin Kripps (pilot), Jesse Lumsden, Cody Sorenson, & Ben Coakwell
