Isle of Wight-born Kim Murray has followed up her call-up to the GB World Cup Skeleton squad with two stand-out performances in the European Cup over the weekend.
As reported by Isle of Wight Radio, Kim, was picked for Team GB just over three weeks ago – alongside Olympic bronze medalist Laura Deas.
She’s set to make her debut on the international stage in Latvia next month (December) but before then she’s hit the ground running.
Kim, originally from Ryde, took fourth place in Innsbruck, Austria on Friday (16), finishing in 1:49.21 – just one-tenth of a second off a bronze medal.
The following day (17), she managed to land herself some silverware coming in second-place at 1:49.73.
Teammate Madelaine Smith took home gold in the event.
Speaking afterwards, Kim said:
“As a team, we’ve had a fantastic week, and I’m very happy I’ve been able to contribute to that success.
“I’m really pleased with today’s result. After a fourth yesterday, I was confident I could produce a better result today so to actually deliver on that is very positive.
“I’m looking forward to moving on to Winterberg and then making my World Cup debut in Silgulda in the coming weeks.”
The Team GB Skeleton squad now head to Winterberg in Germany for more Intercontinental Cup (ICC) and European Cup (EC) action on Friday (23) and Saturday (24) of next week.
The World Cup season begins in Sigulda, Latvia on the second weekend in December.
