Isle of Wight-born Skeleton athlete Kimberley Murray says she has mixed emotions after finishing 14th in St Mortiz, Switzerland last week.
It was the 31-year-old’s second-best World Cup finish of the year, but she says that it could have been better still.
Towards the end of January, Kim secured a career-best by winning the Intercontinental Cup race at Lake Placid, USA. That 1st place came after setting a new track record in the World Cup at Igls, Austria earlier in the month.
It was Germany’s Tina Hermann that took the win in Switzerland on Friday (31st January) in a time of 2:19.87. Kim, a former Long Jump athlete, finished just 2.47 seconds behind securing 14th place – only 0.24 seconds behind teammate Laura Deas.
