After an encouraging test run in Pyeongchang, China's rookie skeleton pilot Geng Wenqiang has set his sights on zooming to glory at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics

A former long jumper, the 25-year-old Geng only picked up the electrifying sliding sport in 2015 and quickly made history by becoming the first Chinese to qualify for the Olympics in the discipline.

He finished a creditable 13th overall out of the 30 elite pilots in South Korea, but it's a measure of Geng's ambition that he wasn't totally happy with his Games debut.
