Second GB team crash bobsleigh

Paula Walker and Kelly Thomas crash their sled

A second British bobsleigh team has crashed at the Winter Olympics in Canada.

Paula Walker and Kelly Thomas escaped unhurt after they tipped their sled over during a training run.

They were going so fast that they slid all the way over the finish line upside down, but the pair clambered off the track without any injuries.

It comes just a day after British duo John Jackson and Dan Money crashed their bobsleigh in their opening heat.

The latest crash did not put Paula and Kelly off. They dusted themselves off and quickly returned for more training.

Paula said: "It's always better to get straight back in again after a crash... That's what training's for - to try new things."
