Three golds among super six-medal haul as British Skeleton sliders reign in Winterberg
British Skeleton’s excellent start to the 2018-19 season continued as they won six more medals, including three gold, in Winterberg, Germany.
After recording her first international victory for three years when she came out on top in the Intercontinental Cup (ICC) race, Olympic medallist Laura Deas only had to wait 24 hours for her second success after completing back-to-back wins.
MJ Church Ambassador Ashleigh Pittaway narrowly missed out on joining Deas on the podium in the first race, placing fourth, while Marcus Wyatt won silver and bronze in the men’s races.
Kim Murray secured her first-ever international race victory when she took gold in Saturday’s Europa Cup race, with University of Bath alumna Maddy Smith bagging bronze.
It was the perfect warm-up for the World Cup campaign, which begins in Sigulda, Latvia, on December 8.
British Skeleton athletes train at the University of Bath, using the Sports Training Village’s indoor sprint track, High-Performance Gym and the UK’s only outdoor push-start track. Click here to find out more.
