Wanaka skeleton racer Katharine Eustace achieved her best
result of the season at the world championships last weekend.
She finished in 10th, the best result by a New Zealand
''All the races this year were preparation for this event
with equipment testing and training plans, so it was good to
know that it has been successful,'' Eustace said.
Her performance in St Moritz, Switzerland, was an improvement
on her 13th at last season's world championships, and an
encouraging sign for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia,
''It shows that I can certainly be pushing into the top 10
and higher if things do go well.''
