Medal and performance targets[edit]

On 9 January 2018, the funding body UK Sport announced their medal targets for Team GB at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang with the target to win at least five medals which if achieved would be a record-breaking haul for a Winter Olympic Games.[8] Although the target was set at three medals the funding body predicted that Great Britain had the potential to win as many as ten medals, this total was not widely expected to be reached.

NB: Katie Ormerod qualified for both the big air and slopestyle competitions, but was forced to withdraw after suffering a broken heel in training prior to the start of the games.[7]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The GBR-1 team in the Four-man bobsleigh at the 2014 Winter Olympics is expected to receive a bronze medal following disqualifications of two Russian crews, which would give Great Britain five medals from that Olympics.[5]
  2. ^ The final team selected for the Games had numbered 59, but snowboarder Katie Ormerod was forced to withdraw after suffering a broken heel in training the day before the opening ceremony.[7]
