Lizzy has become the first skeleton athlete to successfully defend an Olympic title! “It’s the stuff of dreams.”

“It means so much to me.”

“At times over the last four years it’s been so hard and I’ve doubted myself and wondered whether I could get back to where I wanted to be but the team never lost faith and that’s why I’m back here today on the podium.

“Honestly after the last few years the aim was to get here to the Olympics, I wasn’t thinking about the medals – but to achieve that is the stuff of dreams, as is sharing the podium with Laura who’s been amazing.”
