On 9th February 2017, the one year countdown to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea began.
We marked the occasion by releasing through Getty Images a portrait of Lizzy Yarnold the skeleton bobsleigh slider who won Britain’s only gold medal of the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
Alex Livesey went down to Lizzy’s training base in Portsmouth to shoot the exclusive portrait session on 7th February 2017. A ten-hour round trip and a three-hour shoot made Tuesday a long day but we were really happy with the results and will be releasing more images over the coming weeks.
