Crowds turned out in force to welcome and congratulate Lizzy with her 2 Olympic gold medals for the sport of Skeleton.  The first medal was awarded in 2014 at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games and the second was gained this year at the 2018 Korea Winter Games in PyeongChang.  She was the only British athlete to gain a gold medal at this event.

Lizzy started her tour of the Sevenoaks area in an open-topped bus which left the District Council offices at 9.30 am and then visited as many schools as possible throughout the morning, meeting students from Knole Acadamy, Weald of Kent, Trinity, Otford, Shoreham, Eynsford, Farningham, Swanley, HortonKirby and finally West Kingsdown.
