Britain's first Olympic Winter Games gold medal came in curling at the 1924 Games in Chamonix. Curling would again prove a source of success in Salt Lake City in 2002, when Rhona Martin skipped the women's team to gold.
Great Britain's most recent medal was won in Vancouver, when Amy Williams claimed gold in the skeleton to secure Great Britain's only medal at the 2010 Games.
In Sarajevo in 1984 ice dancers Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean claimed gold as they skated a seamless programme to the music of Ravel's Bolero. The pair received 12 perfect scores, including perfect marks for artistic impression. After a period of professional skating, Torvill and Dean made a return to the Olympic Winter Games in 1994, finishing their Olympic careers with a bronze medal.
Figure skating has provided Great Britain with three other Olympic champions. Jeanette Altwegg won the women's singles event in 1952, while John Curry and Robin Cousins won the men's singles title in 1976 and 1980 respectively.
One of the most famous non-medal winning British winter Olympians is Eddie Edwards. Britain's first Olympic ski jumper competed at the Calgary Games and finished last in both the 70m and 90m events. He was so far off the pace of the competition he became an instant celebrity and was dubbed 'Eddie the Eagle'.
