The Ottawa Lions family would like to wish former hurdler Cody Sorensen and the rest of his Canada 3 sled well as they open up the four man bobsleigh competition tomorrow morning in Sochi. Sorensen now becomes the fifth athlete from the club to compete in the Winter Olympics following in the footsteps of Glenroy Gilbert, Ricardo Greenidge, Sheridan Baptiste and Ken Leblanc who all represented Canada in bobsleigh. The former CIS champion in the 60m hurdles has three fourth place finishes on this year’s World Cup Circuit but will be looking to move up to the podium after the fourth and final run finishes early Sunday morning.
The bobsleigh competition begins at 11:30 am Saturday morning where Cody’s team is slated to start 10th. Run two will follow at 1 pm with teams competing from worst to first based on the first run. Both runs will be carried live on Rogers Sportsnet.
