Amy Gough of Abbotsford whips around the final turn in heat 1 of the women's skeleton event during the 2010 Winter Games at the Whistler Sliding Centre on Thursday.

Amy Gough of Abbotsford slid down to seventh place following the second of four runs in the Olympic women’s skeleton competition on Thursday.
