POST-WINTER OLYMPICS VERDICT:

The story was there in the making.

Lincoln DeWitt had been inspired to take up the skeleton four years ago when he saw the Utah Olympic Park being built.

Last year he won the World Cup title with victory on his hometown track in Salt Lake City.

Those standing trackside during the skeleton were not left wanting.

Chants of U-S-A welcomed home an American winner... the only problem was it was not DeWitt.

It turned out Jim Shea Jnr’s technique was better - as was his story.
