Sheffield steel used in medal-winning ice skaters' blades

Ice skating blades made from Sheffield steel made it onto skates worn by medal-winners at the Winter Olympics.

Two-thirds of the figure skating winners in Pyeonchang wore blades made in Yorkshire.

HD Sports, which has a base in Sheffield, said its kit helped win 18 medals for other nations.

The company has more than 300 years of steel-making expertise.
