Men's GB bobsleigh crash again

Bobsleigh crash

Another British bobsleigh team have crashed out at the Winter Olympics in Canada.

It's been a disappointing Olympics for the four-man team, and they took a corner too high. Nobody was injured in the accident.

They were one of six crews to crash - all at turn 13 - in the first two heats at the Whistler Sliding Centre.

Britain had been in 11th place after the first run, but the crash means they are now in 21st.

The United States lead the way at the halfway stage, with Canada in second place and Germany in third.

It's the fourth time a British bobsleigh team has crashed in the Winter Olympics this year.
