Three years ago Lizzy Yarnold fell out of love with sport so quit and took a sabbatical. Today she became Britain's first double Winter Olympic champion and Laura Deas won bronze.

A historic moment as Izzy Atkin wins Britain's first ever Olympic skiing medal. Born and bred in America (with dual nationality), but "grown up on Marmite and Ribena".  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/winter-olympics/2018/02/17/izzy-atkin-bags-slopestyle-bronze-britains-first-winter-olympics/ 
Love this Winter Olympics picture. 26 minutes after the winner, Mexican cross country skier German Madrazo is welcomed by friends/rivals from Colombia, Tonga, Morocco and Portugal as he finishes. They came 111 / 113 / 114 / 115 / 116 (out of 116) and are absolutely buzzing. https://t.co/n4wJri1Te0
The story of the Olympic cross country skiers fighting their own battle not to come last - featuring the topless Tongan, the 43-year-old Mexican, the Colombian snow plougher, the Brazilian, the Moroccan and the Lebanese.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/winter-olympics/2018/02/16/tongas-topless-skiing-novice-avoids-last-place-finishes-alongside/
