    Background

     The man who put Canadian bobsledding on the map in 1990 when he captured the overall World Cup four-man title, Lori begins his 14th year on the national team determined to improve from his worst showing ever last season.

     A series of injuries and illnesses to himself and brakeman Sheridon Baptiste resulted in a extremely sub-par year for Lori, whose best showing during the 1996-97 campaign was a fourth in the two-man event at the Calgary World Cup stop.

     Long considered one of the best pilots on the circuit, Lori will team up with Baptiste and the Turbo Twins, Matt and Ben Hindle, this season and is expecting to be a threat once again by the time the Nagano Games roll around in February.

     Lori has competed in three Winter Olympics and narrowly missed a medal at the 1992 Albertville Games. Unfortunately, during training for the opening World Cup event of this season, Lori was temporarily put out of action when he pulled a calf muscle.
