Lizzy Yarnold misses out on Skeleton World Cup top-three finish at Sochi
Lizzy Yarnold narrowly missed out on a top-three Skeleton World Cup ranking, despite claiming her eighth top-ten finish of the winter at Sochi.
The Bath-based slider clocked 2mins 0.67secs on the Olympic track to place ninth for the second successive World Cup fixture, meaning she had to settle for fourth spot overall.
British team-mate Shelley Rudman, fresh from winning the World Championship, was seventh in the rankings after coming 13th in Russia.
Donna Creighton’s 19th-placed finish last weekend put her 16th overall.

Just four-hundredths of a second separated Britain’s three male sliders at Sochi, with Ed Smith finishing 14th while Kristan Bromley and Dominic Parsons were joint 15th.
Bromley was the top-ranked Brit during the season, placing seventh, while Smith was 13th and Parsons – who started the winter on the Intercontinental Cup – was 21st.
