Neville Wright joined the Canadian Bobsleigh Team in 2009 after a successful track and field career where he was a two-time All-Canadian in University. Neville competed for Canada at the World University Games and World Championships.

After falling short of qualifying for the 2008 Olympic Summer Games in track by two hundredths of a second, he decided to try his hand at bobsleigh in the summer of 2009. He made the team and competed in Pierre Lueders’ sled on the World Cup, and at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. He joined Team Rush in 2010-11 and competed in his second Games in Sochi 2014.

Outside of competition, Neville is a speed and power coach, motivational speaker and currently working on being a manual and rehabilitation therapist.

Neville holds a Bachelor of Physical Education (Activity & Nutrition) from the University of Alberta, and is in his final year of Remedial Massage therapy.
