Team GB Winter Olympic medallists Amy Williams and Billy Morgan join experienced presenters
Discovery has revealed the UK presentation line-up for its Winter Olympics coverage.
Team GB Winter Olympic medallists Amy Williams, who won skeleton gold in 2010 and Billy Morgan, who won Team GB’s second-ever snowboard medal with bronze in the snowboard Big Air in 2018, will join presenters Reshmin Chowdhury, Radzi Chinyanganya, Orla Chennaoui and a host of other experts.
Greg Rutherford will front the action alongside Reshmin Chowdhury, delivering analytical pieces from the Cube studio in London following his failed attempt to reach the Games as part of the Team GB four-man bobsleigh team. Chowdhury will also front daily highlights show Beijing Today. Chennaoui and Chinyanganya will be based in China.
