09 December 2013 / 10:46

British skeleton slider Lizzy Yarnold will aim to make it three World Cup medals from three this week as we give a flavour of the Olympic sport taking place over the next seven days.

The skeleton and bobsleigh World Cup tour will take in its last events in North America as Yarnold, who has gold and silver from the first two, and co move to Lake Placid.

The luge World Cup series switches with that of the skeleton and bobsleigh by taking place in Park City while there is a host of winter action around Europe.

Cross country skiing’s World Cup tour moves to Davos, biathlon’s lands in France while there’s alpine action in Val d’Isere and freestyle in Val Thorens.

There’s also alpine action in St Moritz and freestyle in Ruka, along with snowboarding, and Beida Lake in China while Germany plays host to two events.

The ski jumping World Cup lands in Titisee-Neustadt and curling’s final Olympic qualifier is being held in Fuessen while elsewhere there’s Nordic combined in Ramsau.

Further snowboarding in Carezza rounds off the winter action and there is also swimming to look out for as the European Short Course Championships take place in Herning.
