Skeleton Bob - women's team

A gold medal hope before the Games, Coomber was just delighted - and relieved - to win a medal.

She finished behind Americans Tristan Gale and Lee Ann Parsley to claim a bronze.

Before the Games, the RAF officer clinched her third successive World Cup crown.

Last year she won the title with victory in the final leg at the Olympic venue - Park City, Utah.

Coomber came to prominence when she won the gold at the 2000 Goodwill Games.
