Lizzy Yarnold claimed her third World Cup win of the season by clinching gold at Winterberg.

The Briton was tied with Noelle Pikus-Pace after the pair had completed their opening runs, but on her second run Yarnold finished more than half a second clear of her rival.

"I'm starting to dream ahead now to Sochi 2014," Yarnold told BBC Sport.

In all five World Cup races this season, Yarnold has finished on the podium, and is leading the World Cup standings. Pikus-Pace has won the other two races.
