Lizzy finished with the silver medal in the latest BMW IBSF World Cup race, in only the second race since her return. Her two results so far this year now mean that she currently leads the World Cup standings.

“I’m chuffed with the silver medal today, the snowy conditions were tricky, but that’s what winter sports are all about! After my year off, I’m glad to be back on the podium and feel good about how I’m sliding after 2 races in after a year off. Most of all I will take the positive out of the fact that I wasn’t necessarily the fastest in training this week, but come race day something kicks in and I can bring it when it matters most. Looking forward to the Christmas break as world number 1, can’t wait to catch up with my family and friends.”
