With one round remaining, Bromley is sixth in the overall rankings.

He said: “Another tough race over. 10th place in Igls is alright given my physical recovery strategy.”

Bromley, the only man to win the World Championship, World Cup and European Championhip in the same season, also took part in the team event which combined the skeleton and bobsleigh.
