Andi Schmid: 'Lizzy Yarnold win is incredible'

Great Britain skeleton coach Andi Schmid says that it is "incredible" to see Lizzy Yarnold win gold in the Winter Olympic Games.

Great Britain skeleton coach Andi Schmid has said that it is an "incredible feeling" to see Lizzy Yarnold win gold at the Winter Olympic Games.

Yarnold registered a track record slide in the women's skeleton event as she comfortably won the gold medal.

Schmid told reporters: "It is an incredible feeling.

"It is a great achievement for British Skeleton and the individual athlete.

"In my head I am thinking what did we achieve with four different names on the podium in four Olympics? The programme is producing great results and to have another incredible athlete again on the podium is phenomenal."

The win made Yarnold Britain's tenth Winter Olympic champion.
