Kent's Olympic skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold will be awarded an MBE by the Queen today for services to her sport after she slid to victory at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
The athlete became a household name after she won Team GB's first gold medal of the Games, cruising to victory after leading the field in every training run leading up to the Games and over the entire four-race event.<
The 26-year-old lives who grew up in West Kingsdown took over the crown of Olympic champion from her landlady - former British skeleton athlete Amy Williams.
Yarnold also won the skeleton World Cup in the 2013/14 season, reaching the podium in every race, and her feats have seen her shortlisted for the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year.
She will be honoured for services to skeleton racing at an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle.
