By winning two World Cup medals in 2015, Laura Deas displayed the sort of talent that could see her be next on the seemingly endless production line of British Olympic skeleton champions.
But skeleton was far from the only sport Laura had a knack for, previously running a livery yard near her hometown of Wrexham as a professional event rider, playing hockey for North Wales and captaining the Wales tetrathlon team at international competitions.
She took up skeleton thanks to the Girls4Gold scheme and after winning overall bronze in the 2013/14 Intercontinental Cup, stepped up a level to win silver at the Calgary World Cup event and bronze in St Moritz during the 2014/15 season.
A great breakfast including tea, fresh orange and crispy bacon!
