My sled bid terror

Dr Sandy Scott will be cheering on the GB bobsleigh team at the Winter Olympics despite having failed in his own bid to win a place.

Dr Scott, a GP in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, came 12th out of 13 competitors in the British two-man bobsleigh championship, and admitted he was 'absolutely terrified' while taking part.

But the daredevil GP, 61, was twice as old as the others, and had only three days' practice on the Innsbruck track.

He said: 'At the top of the run, in the knowledge of a mile of blue ice with no brakes, it's quite a terrifying ordeal.'
