Amy ends World Cup campaign in fifth

13 February 2009

Bath-based Amy Williams rounded off her Skeleton World Cup campaign with fourth place in the final race of the series in Park City, the USA last night (Thursday).

It means Williams finished the series in fifth overall – the highest World Cup series finish of her career.

“I’m a little disappointed because I’m still making some mistakes, but if I can make mistakes and still come fourth I should probably come away happy,” she said. “This season is definitely an improvement on last year and I know I can still improve, so I’m looking forward to the World Championships.”

Fellow Brit Shelley Rudman came eighth in the final round of the eight race series to finish second overall. In the men’s races earlier in the day, Kristan Bromley was Britain’s highest placed finisher, coming joint 11th. Ant Sawyer came 16th and Andy Wood 17th. It means Bromley ended the World Cup series ninth overall with Sawyer 13th, and Wood 20th.

The action now moves on to the World Championships in Lake Placid, where the skeleton races take place from Thursday 26 February through to Saturday 28 February.

British Skeleton has its base at the University of Bath.
