Josh Hudson joined the British Bobsleigh set up as a brakeman ahead of the 2021/22 sliding season but made the switch to the front seat for the 2023/24 campaign.

He made his GB debut in Lillehammer on the Europa Cup (EC) circuit in November 2021, when he finished 12th alongside John Stanbridge, and he went on to race seven times as a brakeman in either 2-man or 4-man competition over the following 13 months.

Josh opted to become a pilot during the 23/24 pre-season and he raced in the front seat for the first time in November 2023 as he registered a 19th-place finish with Ally Kay in Lillehammer.

He competed eight times last season (seven times as a 2-man pilot and once as a 4-man push athlete), with his best result a 10th-place finish in Sigulda in December.

Josh competed in a multitude of sports from a young age, including rugby union up to the age of 21, before transferring to bobsleigh. He has been an avid weightlifter since the age of 16, which sparked his interest in becoming a personal trainer.

Josh currently runs his own personal training business alongside his training for bobsleigh.
