Bromley closes on skeleton title
Kristan Bromley
Bromley came fifth at the Turin Games in 2006
Britain's Kristan Bromley clinched gold in round six of the bob skeleton World Cup in St Moritz to edge closer to a second overall World Cup series title.

Bromley, who became European champion last week, is 17 points clear in the World Cup rankings with two rounds of the competition remaining.

The 35-year-old last won the World Cup in the 2003/4 season.

British sliders have won eight medals - six by men and two by women - of the 36 up for grabs to date this term.

Bromley's team-mate Ant Sawyer finished ninth in St Moritz, with Adam Pengilly coming 17th.

In the women's races, Maggie Davies finished 16th with Amy Williams coming 22nd.

606: DEBATE

Skeleton has been the success story for British winter sport over the last five years.

Medals have been won at the last two winter Olympics - Alex Coomber came third at the 2002 Games at Salt Lake City and four years later Shelley Rudman took silver at Turin.

As a result, UK Sport more than doubled its funding for the sport to 2m leading up to the 2010 Games in Vancouver.
