Olympics place a dream - Yarnold

Skeleton racer Lizzy Yarnold says being picked to represent Team GB at the Winter Olympics in Sochi is the culmination of a long-held ambition.

The 25-year-old, who took up the skeleton six years ago, won the overall World Cup title on Friday.

Yarnold won four of the first seven World Cup races and although she finished off the podium for the first time in the last race of the season, she took the overall title by 152 points.

Yarnold, speaking to BBC Sport before Friday's race in Germany, knows there is a lot of expectation on her shoulders to win gold in Sochi but says she will give it "everything".
