Wales’ Skeleton Star Laura Deas Eighth In Final Outing Before World Championships

Next up for the 32-year-old from Wrexham is the World Championships in Altenberg, Germany on February 11 and 12.

Deas was one of three Brits to finish in the top 10 at the meeting in Igls.

Brogan Crowley shattered her personal best of ninth in Konigsee last weekend to finish fifth.

Ashleigh Pittaway was 10th – and it was just the second time Britain have had three female sliders in the top 10 of a World Cup since Lizzy Yarnold took gold, Rose McGrandle took bronze and Deas finished seventh in Igls back in 2015.

Deas was +1.09 secs slower as Russia’s Elena Nikitina took gold ahead of home favourite and overall World Cup winner Janine Flock, with Kimberly Bos finishing third.
