Sheridon Baptiste possesses one quality that other brakemen can only dream of: blinding speed. Easily the fastest man on the Canadian team, Baptiste, 33, has fully recovered from a series of injuries that knocked him out of several World Cup races and the world championships in St. Moritz, Switzerland last season.
A former national team sprinter, the Guyanian born Baptiste is a major part of Chris Lori's plan to get back on the medal podium at the World Cup level this year.
On top of his speed, Baptiste ranks among the top brakemen in the world in both the two-man and four-man events.
The Ottawa athlete was a three-sport star at Queen's University in Kingston in the late 1980's and still trains occasionally with Glenroy Gilbert, a member of Canada's world and Olympic champion 4x100 metre relay team.
