With two of four skeleton runs in the books, the leader in Women’s Skeleton at the Vancouver Olympics is Britain’s Amy Williams, who hasn’t even won a medal on the World Cup circuit this season.

“The sport is so tight between each person that anything can happen,” she said.

All three medalists from 2006 are in the field, with Canada’s gold-medal favorite Mellisa Hollingsworth in third, just nine-hundredths of a second behind.

American Noelle Pikus-Pace is fifth. Katie Uhlaender of Summit County is currently in ninth.

A Japanese slider was disqualified because her skeleton lacked a mandatory sticker.
