Bath (RWH) The British Bobsleigh & Skeleton Association (BBSA) has announced the appointment of Joanna Poulton as its new Chair Designate. She joins the Board of the national governing body for the sports of skeleton and bobsleigh in Great Britain with immediate effect, with confirmation of her position as Chair expected at the upcoming Board meeting in April.

Joanna Poulton, who previously worked as non-Executive Director with the sports federations GB Snowsport and the Royal Yachting Association (RYA), replaces Christopher Rodrigues who steps down after five-and-a-half years at the helm. In this time, he oversaw the merger of the British Bobsleigh Association and the British Bob Skeleton Association into a single governing body for both sports. Under his tenure, the teams won four Olympic medals, including gold for skeleton athlete Lizzy Yarnold at both Sochi 2014 and PyeongChang 2018. ©RWH2019
