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.
