At the halfway point of the Olympic women's skeleton event, Canadian Sarah Reid sits within sliding distance of the frontrunners.

Reid's combined time of 1:58:31 has left her in 8th place in the competition, which wraps up tomorrow with the final two runs.

Her teammate, veteran Melissa Hollingsworth, didn't fare as well. She clocked 159.38 for her two runs, leaving her in 16th position.

Britain's Elizabeth Yarnold, regarded as the top skeleton racer in the world, leads the event with a total of 1:56:89 after two runs, followed by the U.S.A.'s Noelle Pikus-Pace, who came in at 1:57:33.
