Gough sits in seventh place

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.

Gough had been in silver medal position after clocking a time of 54.14 seconds in her first run down the track at Whistler Sliding Centre. But she was slower on her second trip, crossing the finish line in 54.78 seconds. That was only the 11th-fastest time of the second run, and left her tied for seventh overall with Shelley Rudman of Great Britain. Both athletes have clocked a total of 1:48.92 through two runs.

Amy Williams of Great Britain is the leader with a total time of 1:47.96, while Germany’s Kerstin Szymkowiak is second and Canada’s Mellisa Hollingsworth is third.

The third and fourth runs in the women’s skeleton competition are slated for Friday at 3:45 p.m. and 4:55 p.m.
