What you're doing to boost British sport

Team GB have made history at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, but our athletes couldn’t even get out of the blocks without backing from National Lottery players. Every time you play, you’re helping to fund our British Olympic and Paralympic stars through physio, coaching, training and more.

To say thanks, our medallists share how your support has helped them to bring home some bling.

First off the blocks

Dom Parsons picked up the first medal in the men’s skeleton for Team GB in South Korea but it didn’t end there, Mr Parsons is also the first British man to secure a medal in the sport for 70 years!

It's snow time

The first lady of skeleton

Lizzy Yarnold made Winter Olympic history for Team GB. After a fantastic final run in the women’s skeleton she secured her second Olympic gold to become our first ever double Olympic Champion.
