WATERFOOT slider Kristan Bromley is in joint eighth place after the first two rounds of the Winter Olympics skeleton bob.

Home favourite Alexander Tretiakov has a 0.56 second lead at the mid-point of the men's skeleton.

The Russian's combined score of 1:51.99 is significantly better than second placed Martins Dukurs of Latvia.

Former world champion Bromley (+2.27), known as Dr Ice, shares eighth spot with Canadian John Fairbairn, while fellow Brit Dominic Parsons (+2.41) is joint 10th.

"In the first run I made a couple of little mistakes as the speed of the track was a bit different to training," said Bromley.

"My second run was much more competitive, but I had a but too much height into turn 11 which cost me. Overall I'm pretty pleased with where I am at heading into the final two runs. I will keep trying and try to finish in the top 6."
