The Army Skeleton Bobsleigh Championships were held in Igls, Austria between 29 Jan – 5 Feb 12. Temperatures slowly dropped over the week to -20 on race day, providing the competitors with some very fast ice. The race was very close after lauf 1 with a tie for first place between Capt Howard Chaganis RIFLES and Maj Taff Edwards RAMC. The pressure was on for the second lauf but Capt Howard Chaganis RIFLES achieved a PB time and stole the champion title. Cpl Dave Manning R SIGNALS came back with a cracking run to claim second place. The Ladies race was won by a large margin by Sgt Nicki Moxon R SIGNALS. However, acknowledgement must go to Pte Robin Ellis QARANC who took second place in her novice week and after only 6 training laufs.
