WINTER OLYMPICS: Kristan Bromley ninth after two rounds
3:08pm Friday 14th February 2014 in Sport
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."
