Aussie athletes okay after bobsleigh mishap
19 February 2010
Bobsleigh athlete Duncan Harvey is resting today after he and Chris Spring crashed during training at Whistler last night.
Harvey underwent x-rays and a CT scan after the sled crashed on turn five and the athletes and the machine slid down the track. Doctors gave him the all clear but he has suffered some bruising to the lower back and has been told to rest.
The Australians were one of seven teams who crashed during the session.
Chris Spring escaped unhurt and he will return to the track today with Anthony Ryan stepping in as brakeman.
The two-man bob will commence on Saturday evening, with the final two runs scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
