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.

500m Speed Skating

Britain's Elise Christie thought she had picked up a silver medal after a chaotic 500m short speed skating final but her delight swiftly turned to disappointment as judges ruled that she was at fault for a first lap collision and was subsequently disqualified.

China's Li Jianrou crossed the line unchallenged at the Iceberg Skating Palace following the melee, but it was decided that 23-year-old Christie had caused the three woman pile up at the start, a decision that saw her slip from second to fourth with Italy's Arianna Fontana securing silver with Seung-Hi Park of South Korea claiming the final podium spot.

She was additionally penalised and dropped to eighth overall, behind all the B-finalist racers.

An emotional Christie disagreed with decision that saw his disqualified, telling BBC Sport: "No, I thought she hit me. I was not sure if it would go my way, I did not think it would be me [to be penalised] but it was. You have to respect the decision.

"I have not watched it back so I cannot comment. During the race, I thought I was in front.

"I was really relaxed as it was not my major event. I will use the next day to get my head back together."

Christie will be looking to bounce back in her favoured 1000m skate next week.

Men's Ski Slopestyle

Briton James Woods also missed out on a medal in the men's ski slopestyle final as the United States secured a clean sweep of the podium places.

22-year-old Woods had been struggling with a hip injury he sustained in a training run late last week but was awarded a score of 86.60 on his first run to seal a spot in the top five as American Joss Christensen secured gold with a score of 95.80 ahead of compatriots Gus Kenworthy in second and Nicholas Geopper in third.

"I am incredibly proud to be here," Woods told BBC Sport. "It is always a bit disappointing when you do not perform to your best, but it was an immense final.

"Joss Christensen is the nicest guy, so I could not be happier for him.

"In any other occasion I would not be near my skis and boots. Potential is something that can be great or can cut you deep. I cannot be unhappy with this - it is the world stage.

"Fifth in the Olympics, with four of my best mates in front of me, it is great."
