Great Britain could be set for a record-breaking medal haul at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, according to a statistical study.

The work, by Infostrada Sports, predicts that Team GB will win six medals, including one gold. That would surpass their previous best Games haul, from Chamonix in 1924.

And the tally would also outstrip GB's performances at the last two Winter Olympics, with one medal won in Vancouver and one in Turin.

UK Sport is set to announce its official medal targets for the Games next week.

The study, based on recent results, predicts gold for Bath-based Lizzy Yarnold and silver for Wiltshire's Shelley Rudman in the skeleton, silver for the women and bronze for the men in curling, as well as bronze medals for freestyle skier James Woods and speed skater Elise Christie.
