Beijing 2022

Sportspeople at the Team Bath Sports Training Village will be looking to extend a remarkable run of medal success when Beijing hosts the 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The previous five Winter Olympic Games, dating back to 2002, have seen Bath-based athletes win medals in eight events – including women’s skeleton gold in 2010 (Amy Williams), 2014 and 2018 (Lizzy Yarnold).

Athletes with the British Bobsleigh & Skeleton Association (BBSA), based at the University of Bath, are training hard towards Beijing 2022 on the UK’s only outdoor push-start track and other facilities in the STV, including the high-performance gym and indoor sprint track.

Here’s what skeleton stars Laura Deas – an Olympic bronze-medallist in 2018 – and Ashleigh Pittaway had to say about the prospect of competing in Beijing.

Watch the video below to see the skeleton squad back in training following lockdown during the summer of 2020, alongside other Olympic squads based at the STV.
