The former Olympic sprinter Chris Donaldson has swapped the track for the ice as he and his New Zealand Bobsleigh team-mates look to become just the third sled team to represent New Zealand at the Winter Olympics.

The New Zealanders take their first step towards qualification for next years Winter Olympics in Vancouver when they line-up at the World Championships in the United States this weekend.

Donaldson is revelling in his new role and says Bobsleigh has not only re-invigorated his Olympic dream but has also increased his speed on the sprint track.
