Lillehammer 2016 monobob gold medallist Laura Nolte has made the switch to compete in the two-man bobsleigh event.
The 17-year-old German became the first athlete to win the monobob event when it made its Winter Youth Olympic Games debut earlier this year.
Nolte is to continue as a bobsleigh pilot but will now tackle the two-man event and has already participated in a training camp on the Winterberg track in Germany.
"It is different, especially regarding the steering," Laura Nolte told German newspaper Westdeutscher Rundfunk.
"And you are responsible for the second person sitting behind you.
"I am too busy with school in the moment for starting in the European Cup - and to be true, I am not yet ready for that."
Nolte is reportedly set to take her final school exams in April, but will also take part in further training camps in the coming months.
The German Championships and Youth Championships are highlighted as possible events that Nolte will compete in, with the teenager taking a place on the country’s World Cup team in the future.
Monobob is currently not scheduled to appear on the sport programme for the third edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games, with bobsleigh, luge and skeleton events having been left out of the original plan submitted by Lausanne 2020.
Ian Logan, the chief executive of Lausanne 2020, confirmed to insidethegames earlier this week at the Lillehammer 2016 debrief that they were working with International Federations to come to a solution which would see the sports included.
La Plagne in France was cited as one of two option, with their track being around 150 kilometres south of Lausanne.
The second option touted was St Mortiz, which lies 430km away from the Olympic Capital but is still in the same country.
