Winter Olympics - Harriet Evans

By the end of the Olympics it was Russia taking the lead with 33 medals and a Norway in second with 26 medals. Team GB came in 19th with a total of 4 medals which was won in Curling, Skeleton and Snowboard Slope style.

We haven’t achieved anything like this since 1924.

Even though there are victories for some, some things didn’t go to plan for some people. Three disqualifications for Elise Christie, and highly-rated slopestyle skier James Woods was hampered by a hip injury that happened during training. We have been through ups and downs but this has been a great game for all teams.
