British Skeleton

An episode about British Skeleton success at Winter Olympic Games and cooperation with VIST.

Skeleton was reintroduced into the Winter Olympics cycle in 2002. Ever since then, it is safe to say that British Skeleton has dominated the sport, winning medals at each Olympics since.  

Specifically, team Great Britain brought home bronze and silver medals in Salt Lake City 2002 and Turin 2006 respectively. They won gold medals at Vancouver-2010, Sochi-2014 and PyeongChang-2018. 

Amy Williams took the Olympic title in Vancouver in 2010 and Lizzy Yarnold became the first British athlete to win two Winter Olympic gold medals when she triumphed in Sochi in 2014 and PyeongChang in 2018. 

Yarnold’s second gold was matched with a bronze from both Laura Deas and Dom Parsons in PyeongChang, contributing to a historic hat-trick for British Skeleton. 

As a result of their success in South Korea, Great Britain is now the most successful nation in the history of Olympic skeleton.  

Isn’t that impressive for a nation without snow?!
