Britain's Lizzy Yarnold will head to the Winter Olympics in Sochi full of confidence after she clinched the skeleton World Cup title.
Britain has a proud history in the skeleton, with Alex Coomber (bronze, 2002), Shelley Rudman (silver, 2006) and Amy Williams (gold, 2010) all winning Olympic medals in the event in recent years.
And the 25-year-old Yarnold will fancy her chances of following suit following her success in the World Cup.
Yarnold went into the final meeting of the series in Konigsee, Germany with a convincing lead at the top of the standings - having won in Calgary, Lake Placid, Winterberg and Igls.
And although she only finished ninth in the first race of the day, the last race was abandoned meaning closest challenger Noelle Pikus-Pace was unable to overhaul the deficit.
It was the only time that Yarnold had finished out of the overall top three all series, however that will not matter for the Kent slider.
Yarnold becomes the third British woman to win the World Cup title, emulating Rudman (2012) and Coomber (2001, 2001, 2002).
Rudman finished third in Konigssee and that was enough to earn the 32-year-old - part of the Team GB squad for Sochi - third spot overall.
