Brad Hall is now the most successful British men's pilot in World Cup history with no fewer than 20 race medals and three overall season podium places to his name.

He led his team to the country's first World Championship 4-man medal since 1939 when he won silver in St Moritz with Arran Gulliver, Taylor Lawrence and Greg Cackett in 2023 and he piloted the same crew to Great Britain's first-ever European 4-man title in Altenberg earlier that year.

Brad guided GB to Overall World Cup silver in the 4-man and Overall bronze in both the 2-man and Combined disciplines that same season as he and his crew won three gold, seven silver and a bronze medal in a truly remarkable campaign.

His 2023/24 season was severely disrupted by injury - both to himself and to members of his crew - and he missed as many as half of the year's races as a result. He still managed to win 4-man World Cup bronze in Lillehammer in January, though - a result that would have been celebrated significantly in any other season prior to his record haul in 2022/23 and the seven medals he won the previous season in the build up to the Beijing Olympic Winter Games.

He finished sixth in the 4-man at the 2022 Olympics and 11th in the 2-man, having been 12th in the 2-man and 17th in the 4-man at his first Olympics in PyeongChang four years earlier. 

Prior to the 2021/22 season, Brad claimed Great Britain's first 2-man World Cup medal for more than 30 years when he won silver alongside Cackett in Igls in January 2020. He equalled the country's best 2-man result at a World Championships for 53 years when he placed joint fourth with Nick Gleeson in Whistler in 2019 and he again finished fourth with Lawrence at his seventh World Championships in Winterberg in 2024.

Having come through the Accelerated Driver Programme after initially joining British Bobsleigh as a brakeman in 2012, he made his first World Cup outing as a driver in early 2015 and went on to compete at both the 2016 and 2017 World Championships before piloting Joel Fearon, Cackett and Bruce Tasker to a World Cup bronze medal in Park City in November 2017.

Brad played county level rugby in his teens and represented the South of England at college. He turned his attentions to athletics from the age of 16-21, setting a national record in the decathlon and achieving a top five UK ranking for the U23 discus.

His first winter sports experience came in skeleton after applying through a UK Sport Talent TD campaign but he switched to bobsleigh shortly after his maiden trip to Lillehammer in 2011/12.
