Brand Ambassador Lizzy Yarnold has finished runner-up in the Sky Sports & Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year Awards.
She was pipped at the post by Double Olympic dressage champion Charlotte Dujardin.
Speaking at the awards, Lizzy said: “I was so humbled to be nominated amongst such fantastic sportswoman – the performances this year have been incredible.
“To come second in such a tough field is a great achievement and I can’t wait to head back out to the rest of the Skeleton Team and share it with them – it is such a team effort to get me to the start block so this is for everyone involved.
“I am delighted for Charlotte (Dujardin - the winner of the main award) – she is at the top of her sport and her achievements this year have been amazing.”
The celebrations had to come to an early close as Lizzy continues her preparations for the first race of the 2014/15 season in Lake Placid, USA in early December.
