OIympic skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold claimed the European title in Austria on Sunday.

Yarnold was fastest in both runs at Igls to beat home competitor Janine Flock and fellow Briton Rose McGrandle.

The 26-year-old also triumphed in the World Cup event held at the same venue on Saturday. She is third in the overall World Cup standings heading into the final round in Sochi – 53 points behind leader Flock.

The European Championships had been moved to Igls after weather problems forced the cancellation of the scheduled event at La Plagne in France.
