Britain’s Lizzy Yarnold continued her fantastic start to the skeleton season with a gold medal in race four of the World Cup at Lake Placid in the USA.
It means the 25-year-old has now secured podium places in all four of her World Cups to date following her gold at Calgary in Canada, silver at Park City in the USA, and a bronze at the first of two back-to-back Lake Placid races.
She said: “Of course I am pleased with how things have gone so far, but we are only 4 races in and there are so many talented and experienced sliders I am competing against.”
Yarnold, who does some of her training at the University of Bath, tops the FIBT world rankings. University graduate Shelley Rudman is second in the world rankings.
University of Bath student Dom Parsons is now seventh in the men’s rankings after an 11th place finish at Lake Placid. Parsons is studying for a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and is supported by a Santander Sports Scholarship.
