Britain's wonderful winter sports weekend

It has been a good weekend for Team GB's winter sports competitors, a year ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

First up on Friday in the skeleton bob at St. Moritz Shelley Rudman followed on from Kristan Bromley her partner's win in 2008 by taking the world title. She said she only considered this year a development year ahead of the Olympics, where she hopes to emulate Britain's defending champion Amy Williams in their event.

Then today after the penultimate round of the short track speed skating world cup in the Olympic venue at Sochi, Glasgow's Elise Christie, came second, which was good enough after her performance this season to ensure she cannot be overtaken for the 1000m title.

Back in St. Moritz today the men's 4-man bobsleigh came 5th just 0.07 secs away from a medal and 0.66 secs behind the gold medal winning German crew.
