12 January 2014 / 13:57

Former world champion Kristan Bromley came fifth in the men’s World Cup skeleton event in St Moritz on Sunday.

The Briton, a two-time overall World Cup champion, was third after his first run of 1:08.85minutes but fell away after a second run of 1:08.60.

As has been the case so often it was the Dukurs brothers, Martins and Tomass, who dominated the top two positions, with the former coming out on top in Switzerland.

In the third straight event where the Latvians have finished in the top two spots, Martins prevailed in a total time of 2:15.54.

Tomass was timed in 2:16.63 for the silver and Canada's John Fairbairn took the bronze in 2:17.32.

Martins leads the way in the overall standings with Russia's Alexander Tretiakov in second and brother Tomass in third with the tour moving to Igls, Austria next weekend.
