Biography

www.skeletonamy.co.uk

Amy Williams won Team GB's only gold medal at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games in women's skeleton, despite this being her debut Games. In winning gold Williams became Team GB’s first individual Olympic Winter Games gold medallist for 30 years and the first woman individual gold medallist for 58 years.

Williams' career has revolved around the city of Bath. It’s where she grew up and went to school, college and university, and where her sporting career was based as part of the skeleton team.

Her career began with a trial run on a skeleton push track before Amy entered the World Push Championships in 2002. She won a silver medal, and never looked back despite “not really liking it” when she first went down the track. Aside from the Vancouver Olympics she also won a World Championship silver medal, and another silver in a World Cup race in Whistler.

Post retirement, Amy has been nominated as an Official Team GB Ambassador ahead of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
