Biography >

Craig excelled as a sprinter, winning 100m bronze at the 2003 World Youth Championships and then taking 100m gold at the 2005 European Junior Championships.

A silver followed over 60m at the 2007 European Indoor Championships in Birmingham, when he was beaten into second place by training partner Jason Gardener.

Craig took up bobsleigh in 2013, earning a place on the GBR1 crew for the start of the 2013/4 season. That opened the door to the prospect of him competing at both summer and winter Olympics after he represented Great Britain in the 100m at the Beijing 2008 Games.

Craig has a Sport and Exercise Science degree from the University of Bath and combined his studies with training as part of Malcolm Arnold’s sprint group.
