Bobsleigh team, Calgary, August, 2009 Photo by Mike RidewoodConsidered one of the most powerful brakemen in all of bobsleigh, Lascelles Brown has competed internationally for three different countries, but has had his greatest success while wearing the maple leaf for Canada.

His bobsleigh career began in his native Jamaica, for whom he competed at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Games. That same year he moved to Canada and began representing his new home in 2004. Brown’s impact was immediate, as he earned two-man gold and four-man bronze with pilot Pierre Lueders at the 2005 World Championships.

Whether Brown would be able to compete for Canada at the Turin 2006 Olympic Winter Games was unknown until January 21, 2006, when he was granted Canadian citizenship. Less than a month later he stood on the Olympic podium, having won silver in the two-man event with Lueders. Continuing with the Canadian team, Brown would compete at his third Olympic Winter Games in 2010 and won his second Olympic medal, capturing bronze in the four-man event with pilot Lyndon Rush, David Bissett and Chris LeBihan.

In 2010-11, Brown began competing for Monaco. After two seasons there, he returned to the Canadian team in preparation for Sochi 2014, where he finished ninth in both the two-man and four-man events with pilot Lyndon Rush.

Career Highlights

2006 Olympic Silver Medallist (two-man with Pierre Lueders)… 2010 Olympic bronze medallist (four-man with Lyndon Rush, David Bissett and Chris LeBihan)…


Got his start in bobsleigh at age 25 after a friend told him about it… Had always wanted to be the best at something… Prior to bobsleigh, had been a boxer but didn’t really like it… Nickname: King… Inspired by NBA player Kobe Bryant because “he knows how to get it done”… Listens to R&B music before a competition to get in the zone… Favourite quote: “If you even dream of beating me, you’d better wake up and apologize.” – Muhammad Ali… Favourite Olympic memories are having his medals put around his neck…
