BBC Sport - Lizzy Yarnold wants to defend Olympic crown

Yarnold plots 2018 Olympic defence

Great Britain's Lizzy Yarnold wants to become the first women to defend an Olympic skeleton title but says rest is her immediate priority.

"It's been a really tough year or few years, so I need a rest and then I can come back stronger," she added.

The 2018 Games take place in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Yarnold completed a career 'grand slam' with victory at the Skeleton World Championships, to add to her successes at the Winter Olympics and World Cup in 2014.
