ST. MORITZ, Feb 3 - Three-time skeleton world champion Martins Dukurs failed to make it four, but by the slightest of margins – 0.03 seconds yesterday in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Two errors on the third run gave Russia’s Alexander Tretyakov a big lead that even a fast and flawless fourth run Dukurs failed to erase.

Russia was on the podium with bronze too, in the person of Sergei Chudinov.

Brother Tomass Dukurs had a poor championship, finishing eighth.
