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.
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 while she retired in May 2012.
