BRITAIN'S Olympic bobsleigh team are leading the World Cup four-man standings for the first time in 30 years. Mark Tout, the British champion, moved into pole position in the overall points table after finishing fourth in Calgary yesterday, writes Chris Moore.

Tout, and his crew of Chris Symonds, Jason Wing and Eric Sekwalor, had won silver and bronze medals in the two previous World Cup races in Altenberg last month. Britain's second driver, Sean Olsson, finished seventh.

Tout has only to avoid disaster in the fifth and final World Cup race in St Moritz next month to be certain of an overall medal in the last event before the Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer in February.
