Qualification for PyeongChang 2018 depends on points accumulated from races during the season of the Games.

The 2018 games' opening ceremony takes place on 9 February 2018 in South Korea.

Potter, who is from Bangor, said: "It [the Winter Olympics] is definitely on my mind, I'm still part of Olympic qualification.

"I am just taking every race one step at a time and I'm not getting too ahead of myself and I am aiming for that. I just want to see how things turn out

"I have still got time, I have still got a year to go."

She competes in Germany this weekend looking to improve on her season best finish of 26th place claimed in the USA on 21 January.
