Harry Johnston joined the British Bobsleigh youth set up in the autumn of 2019 after impressing during summer training and trials.

A keen cricketer, rugby player and athlete, Harry has a strong family background in bobsleigh and has been around the sport as a result from a young age.

Harry’s father, Lee, is the coach for the senior British team and has been to a total of five Olympic Winter Games (three as an athlete and two as a coach), while his uncle, Karl, represented Team GB at the 2006 games in Turin.

Harry’s brother, George finished sixth at the 2016 Youth Olympics in Lillehammer, while the first of his two godfathers, Paul Attwood, was a bronze medalist at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano and the second, Tom De La Hunty, already has 10 Olympics to his name as an athlete and a coach. 

Harry is currently studying for a BTEC in Sport and Science at Richard Huish College in Taunton, having previously gained nine GCSEs at Bishop Fox’s School.
