A high-performance track and field athlete at the varsity and national level, Justin Kripps got introduced to the sport of bobsleigh after accepting an invitation to participate in a testing camp in August 2006. Justin quickly discovered the sport was a fun and unique challenge, which he was willing to take on and pursue a career in.

Transitioning into bobsleigh from track and field, Justin was one of the top brakeman on the Canadian Bobsleigh Team for nearly three years. After competing in his first Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver-Whistler, Justin moved into the driver’s seat after taking pilot’s school in the summer of 2010. He made his World Cup debut in 2012 in Whistler, and has quickly emerged as one of the top pilots in the country and on the world world stage. Justin drove into his second Olympics, and first as a pilot, in Sochi, Russia on a hot streak after sliding to his first World Cup win in the two-man race in Konigssee, Germany. He grabbed his second career medal on the World Cup as a pilot three years ago when he slid to the bronze in Konigssee, Germany. Team Kripps added another bronze in four-man action in 2016 in Lake Placid, NY, and again last year with a silver in two-man racing in New York before breaking through on his favourite German track in Konigssee to win a silver medal with Jesse Lumsden at the 2017 World Championships.
