Elizabeth Anne Yarnold, OBE – born 31 October 1988 – is a former British skeleton racer who joined the Great Britain national squad in 2010.

With consecutive Olympic gold medals in 2014 and 2018, she is the most successful British Winter Olympian and the most successful Olympic skeleton athlete of all time from any nation.

She won the 2013–14 Skeleton World Cup (only once finishing off the podium the whole season), followed by a gold in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Yarnold was selected to be one of the two women skeleton drivers representing Team GB at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, and went on to become the first person to defend an Olympic gold in skeleton and the first British athlete to defend a Winter Olympic title.

Yarnold was also the flag bearer for Great Britain at the Pyeongchang opening ceremony.

In 2022, she served as a TV pundit for the BBC’s coverage of Beijing 2022.
