Gallery: Summer of awards for Skeleton

British Skeleton enjoyed an award winning summer as they stole the show at the Team GB Ball before Andi Schmid was honoured by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Argentina.

We take a look back at the best images from two special nights, on the back of a very special season, for British Skeleton.

Who won what in London?

  • Bronze medalist Laura Deas and Olympic Champion Lizzy Yarnold picked up Team GB's Inspirational Moment Award after they became the first Brits to share a Winter Olympic podium in an individual sport
  • Former Performance Director Andi Schmid collected the prestigious Coach of the Year Award after guiding Deas, Yarnold and Dom Parsons to Olympic medals at an historic Games that also saw Jerry Rice secure a personal best at elite level with a top 10 finish
  • Yarnold was voted the Olympians’ Olympian by her PyeongChang team-mates after becoming Britain’s most-decorated Winter Olympian

And in Buenos Aires?

  • Schimd signed off from a stunning 17-year career with British Skeleton by receiving a Coaches Lifetime Achievement Award from the IOC at the Olympism in Action Forum
