Rudman Takes Gold

2006 Winter Olympics Silver medalist Shelley Rudman added another medal to her collection today as she took World Cup goal in the meeting at Winterberg.

The skeleton rider set a new course record on the way and was over a second clear of her nearest rivals.

it was a great comeback from the British athlete after she had endured a turbulent start to her season with mixed fortunes, and the overshadowing by fellow GB athlete Lizzy Yarnold.

Rudman broke the record on her first run in Germany with a superb 58.06 clocking and as a result she could take a more conservative second run to guarantee the gold.

On the victory, Rudmon posted on Twitter: “Just won the Winterberg World Cup and set a new track record by half a second!”

it means that GB athletes have won two of the four World Cup runs so far this season as they look to start the long process to the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014.
