News: Sleds developed in Rotherham win medals at European championship


Two of the UK's top Bob Skeleton pilots achieved medal success at last week's 2009 European Championships in St Moritz, Switzerland thanks to sleds developed and constructed by Bromley Team Innovation at the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham. Shelley Rudman secured gold in the Women's competition and moved to the top of the FIBT World Cup rankings following her win on Friday. Despite nursing a broken finger, Shelley also managed to break the track record. Twenty four hours later defending FIBT World Cup champion, Kristan Bromley followed his partner's example with a silver medal in the Men's competition, marking a great weekend for the British pair. Kristan is a Design Engineer, with a further Doctorate in Materials Engineering, whilst his brother and business partner, Richard is a Structural Dynamics and Systems Engineer. This unique mix of expertise in science, engineering and sport, has led to the company's mission of becoming world leading innovators of performance sports products. Kristan commented: "We are looking to expand our product range outside of the bobsleigh sports into multi sport markets, whilst offering a 'one stop shop' for leading brands to push the performance boundaries of their products in order to become and maintain a market lead position. "The AMP is the perfect location to achieve this, as this world class technology park's facilities provide advanced solutions to ensure we gain a repetitive advantage over our industry." The tour now moves on to Whistler in Canada, the track for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
