Amelia Coltman's season was ended by Covid.

Amelia Coltman's season has been ended by Covid.

Having secured a good result in the last Intercontinental Cup before Christmas, the 25-year-old was selected by Team GB to step up onto the World Cup Skeleton stage in Latvia.

After travelling on Boxing Day she unfortunately tested positive for Covid and instead of taking to the ice on December 31, she began 10 days of isolation in her hotel room.

Coltman said she was absolutely gutted as she not only missed out on the awesome opportunity in Latvia, she also had to miss the remaining Intercontinental Cup races in Germany which brings her 2022 season to an abrupt end.

She is hoping to be fit and well again by the end of January to join the team on a training development camp back in Latvia before heading home for a short rest, before starting her off season summer training back in the gym.
