Reigning skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold is looking to make history in PyeongChang by becoming the first ever British athlete to defend their title at a Winter Olympics. Her campaign begins tomorrow, with the final two runs scheduled for Saturday, as she aims to peak at the right time following her return to the sport little over a year ago. One of Lizzy’s biggest competitors will be Laura Deas - representing Team GB at her debut Olympics.
