Williams focused on summer return

Williams relieved after securing silver

Team Bath's Amy Williams is relieved at winning silver in the women's bob skeleton World Championships, but is already looking ahead to next season.

Williams claimed top-six finishes in every race bar one this term and is hopeful a good summer will set her up for Olympic year and success in 2010.

"It's a long way to go a year, anything can happen," she told BBC Points West.

"I've got to have a good summer, a good preparation and ensure I'm the fittest I can be for our selection races."

Those take place in October and signal the start of a campaign that reaches a crescendo with the Olympics in Vancouver in February.

And Cambridge-born Williams will be buoyed by the fact that her best World Cup result of the season, a second place, came at the Whistler Sliding Center, venue for the 2010 Games.

"Hopefully I can float through the summer and some good training after a break," the 26-year-old added.

"The body needs a bit of a break. But I'm really looking forward to getting back on the ice in October and to get back into racing. It will be good fun."
