The Australian men’s bobsleigh crew have finished 25th in the 4-man event on the final day of competition at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games.


With a total time of 02:29.7 seconds across the three runs, the Aussies finished just over three seconds behind Germany’s frontrunners who were piloted by Francesco Friedrich.


Brakeman Lachlan Reidy was emotional after the completion of today’s race, saying his Olympic experience has been overwhelming.

“I feel unreal the boys laid it all on the line this morning. I couldn’t be prouder to race and push with these guys,” he said.

“We literally put it all on the line this morning and maybe came up a little short but I’m still really proud of what we’ve achieved here.”

Reidy was joined by fellow brakeman Hayden Smith and David Mari as an Olympic debutant and the general feeling amongst the team was one of enormous pride.

“I’m so proud. To be up the top of the track here with all our team mates, our parents and all of our close family and friends,” Reidy said.

“It’s an absolute privilege to push in front of them, it’s really overwhelming but a really special moment.”
