Skeleton World Cup 5 saw perhaps the best ever collection of results for the Bromley WRX slider team.
Janine Flock of Austria made history by winning Austria’s first ever gold medal in the ladies Skeleton World Cup event. Janine delivered two perfect runs with a total time of 2:20.34 seconds tosecure victory.
World Cup rookie Canadian slider Elizabeth Vathje secured her second silver medal of the season. Elizabeth delivered another stunning performance on a track that she has had very limited time to clock a total time of 2:20.43 and only 9/100ths of second behind Janine in gold medal position.
Congratulation’s also goes to Laura Deas (GBR) for her bronze medal. Laura rides Bromley runners.
In the men’s race, history continued to be made with Sungbin Yun of Korea winning the Silver medal and his second medal of the season in a time of 2:16.77. This was the highest performance ever achieved in the sliding sports domain by a Korean athlete. On the back of blisteringly fast training all week, Sungbin pushed race winner Martins Dukurs all the way to the finish line.
Dom Parsons of Great Britain, delivered another brilliant consecutive top 4 world cup performance to narrowly miss out on the bronze medal by only 1/1oth of a second.
We would like to pass on our congratulations to Janine, Elisabeth, Sungbin and Dom!
