Rudman celebrates Winterberg win

December 8, 2012 13:10 pm

Shelley Rudman hailed her World Cup skeleton win in Winterberg this weekend but said her main objective remains another Olympic medal at the Winter Games in Sochi in 2014.

Rudman saw off her nearest rivals by over a second to claim her first victory of the season, with Great Britain team-mate Lizzy Yarnold fourth, and Kristan Bromley also fourth in the men's race.

Rudman, who won an Olympic silver medal in Turin in 2006, said: "Everything just slotted into place on the day and it was a great result. It is great to know there is nothing to be concerned about, and my form is definitely there."

Bromley was also pleased with his performance, saying: "The fact that I'm fighting for the podium having started the season with hamstring problems, I didn't think I would be in this position at this point."
