The former 100m European Champion and second fastest British ever, James Desaolu has finally sealed his surprise switch to bobsleigh after a successful international bobsleigh debut last week at the Europa Cup in Winterburg, Germany, where he and Deen finished eighth.
Dasaolu will make his bobsleigh World Cup debut in Austria this weekend.
Dasaolu, 33, is the second fastest British sprinter in history, having set a 100m time of 9.91 seconds at the British Championships in 2013.
The former European 100m champion competed at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics before making the switch to bobsleigh.
He will race alongside double Olympian Lamin Deen in the two-man bobsleigh events on Saturday and Sunday.
In the whole of Great Britain, only Olympic Champion Linford Christie has run 100m faster than Dasaolu, setting a best time of 9.87 seconds at the 1993 World Championships in Stuttgart.
