Joel Fearon focused on securing a medal

Bobsledder Joel Fearon says that he won't be watching much of the action from Sochi 2014, as he will be too busy preparing for his own event.

Great Britain bobsledder Joel Fearon has admitted that he will not watch much of the Winter Olympic Games, instead choosing to focus on his own personal preparation.

A former sprinter, Fearon is part of Team GB's four-man bobsleigh team - alongside Bruce Tasker, Stuart Benson and John Jackson - and believes that they have all the tools to secure a medal in Sochi.

To do that, the 25-year-old has stated that they must remain determined and continue to prepare as well as they have been before their first competition runs on February 22.

"I don't plan to watch much of the Games, not until my job is done, as I probably won't be able to relax," Fearon told "I just want to keep my head down.

"My ambition is just to go out there, not change anything, do what I do best and don't let the occasion get to me because I know that's going to crumble a few teams.

"We've got a lot of surprises in place and we want to make good things happen. A medal is 100 per cent achievable. We'll just see how it goes."

Britain's last bobsleigh medal at a Winter Olympics came via Sean Olsson taking a bronze in Nagano back in 1998.
