Great Britain skeleton slider Lizzy Yarnold has finished second in the World Cup race at Park City, Utah.

The junior world champion led after the first run but was squeezed from the top spot by 0.01 seconds by new World Cup leader Katie Uhlaender of the United States.

Reigning World Cup champion Shelley Rudman came fifth, after a mistake in the second run saw her slip from third. British team-mate Donna Creighton was 11th.

It was the second race of a nine race season, which ends at Sochi, the 2014 Winter Olympic hosts, in February.
