BRITAIN Shelley Rudman has created history – with a bit of South Yorkshire help.

The 31-year-old yesterday become the country’s first female skeleton bobsleigh world champion, with the victory made possible with the aid of skeleton technology developed and built by Bromley Technologies, of Rotherham’s Advanced Manufacturing Park.

Bromley, founded by Shelley’s partner Kristan Bromley and his brother Richard, has developed the bobsleighs for more than 12 years and supplied Shelley with equipment for all her success, including her 2006 Olympic silver medal.
