Bobsleigh: Silver success for British pair
Monday 23 January 2012
Great Britain won their third medal of the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck yesterday when the bobsleigh pair of Mica McNeil and Jazmin Sawyers took silver. Marije van Huigenbosch and Sanne Dekker of the Netherlands won gold.
McNeil, the driver, said: "It means so much, I've been working really hard for a long time so to finally have a medal is great. My first run wasn't great, so for the second one I just had to pretend it's a new race, a new day. I had a fairly good drive and it worked out in the end."
Britain's other medals, a gold and a silver, came in the short-track speed skating on Saturday.
