Team GB are hopeful of several medals from their skiers in Sochi, including Rowan Cheshire, James Woods and Katie Summerhayes, who have all had success this season.

Sharples told BBC Sport: "I sort of get that, there's been lots of amazing results. It's on the cards. We've got a lot to do when we get over to Sochi but anything's possible, that's for sure."
