Lizzy Yarnold focused for Sochi medal hunt

Great Britain skeleton racer Lizzy Yarnold believes that she has to remain focused to secure her goals ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Great Britain's Lizzy Yarnold has revealed that she is comfortable dealing with the pressure of winning a medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

The 25-year-old is widely tipped for gold in Sochi in the skeleton after winning the World Cup title last month, breaking the British record in the process.

"There is a lot of expectation but all I can do is keep calm and focus on the job I can do," Yarnold told BBC Sport.

"Processes for World Cup and Olympics are similar so it's given me the right building blocks to perform."

The first skeleton meet of the Games takes place on February 13.
