Touted as Britain's best hope for a gold medal prior to the Games, Lizzy Yarnold heads in tomorrow's final two runs of the skeleton event poised to realise that ambition. The 25 year-old World Cup leader clocked 58.43 and 58.46 for a combined time of 1:56.89 on Thursday's runs, 0.44 seconds ahead of Noelle Pikus-Pace with Elena Nikitina 0.55 behind in third.

Defending champion Amy Williams is confident Britain's first gold of the 2014 games is around the corner, telling BBC Sport: "I was really impressed. Lizzy showed that pure class. She was calm and confident, hammered out the start, broke the track record and just did two solid runs.

"Her lines were great, and she made the least mistakes out of everyone. On that first run she got the tension out of her body and then was solid.

"It was a joy to watch her slide. It's a very similar situation to mine four years ago. Her advantage of 0.44 secs is a big lead and will give her a chance to breathe a bit overnight.

"She will prepare in exactly the same way and won't take anything for granted and go out and show that consistency. If everyone performs as they did today she will win the gold medal.
