Britain's Lizzy Yarnold won the Olympic women's skeleton gold medal Friday night, a victory that puts the 25-year-old unquestionably atop her sport, probably for years to come. Her four-run time was 0.97 seconds faster than silver medalist Noelle Pikus-Pace of Eagle Mountain, Utah. Yarnold, who also won the World Cup overall title this season, claimed Britain's first gold at the Sochi Games.
