From my understanding, Harris Thomas doesn’t have a :TTO passport, so Andre Marcano will serve as brakeman at the Olympics. Two-time olympian Mikel Thomas has been nominated as backup. 
 

Here is Marcano’s World Athletics profile: https://www.worldathletics.org/athletes/trinidad-and-tobago/andre-marcano-14244879

Wow that makes it really shady then. Pilot gets citizenship while breakman does not. As if they just wanted a commodity they did not already have. Bobsleigh pilots are indeed an investment.

  • The title was changed to Bobsleigh at the Beijing Winter Olympic Games 2022

:GBR rejected their quota in women’s monobob, which was reallocated to :ITA 

 

Updated quota list available here: https://www.ibsf.org/images/documents/downloads/Quotas/OWG_2022/IBSF_OWG_Beijing_2022_-_Bobsleigh_Quotas.pdf

 A little justice there I think, McNeil only raced the monobob twice and was qualified in it.

If the IBSF was smart they would maximize their quotas because they are now going to lose them in 2026. Could easily invite the first four in women's monobob to compete..

:JAM 2 women sled is now on the entry list, up to 21 teams in that event.

What possible reason is there behind this? Hollywood?

where do you see this, the official olympic site still only lists the monobob in their athletes section and the IBSF have not altered their confirmed quotas page?

They were shown as entered in the results management system, but I see they have been removed now.
