We welcome Lizzy Yarnold to deliver our 11th Excellence in Sport Lecture, as part of a series of events to support International Women’s Day (8 March).

Lizzy Yarnold is a double Winter Olympic champion making her the most decorated Team GB athlete in the winter games. Competing in the high-speed event of Skeleton, she won gold in Sochi (2014) and incredibly repeated that achievement in PyeongChang (2018). She is the first winter games athlete to retain their title and therefore cemented her place in sporting history.

She will be answering questions from the audience which can be submitted on the night or sent in advance to community@aru.ac.uk.
