So the 2011/12 Alpine season has come to an end, and its safe to say that I’m really happy with the way the last 2 weeks have gone at the British Alpine Champs in Meribel, France.
I came away with 1 win, 6 second places, and 1 third, so there is definitely a lot of room for improvement, however, it means that my motivation is high to return next year to try and take more gold medals home.
My win came in the British Junior Downhill (under 21’s), my least trained discipline, and was a huge surprise. With bright sunshine and amazing snow conditions, it was so much fun, and was easily one of the best days of the year so far. Unfortunately I missed out on the win in the senior Downhill but 0.3 seconds … A tiny margin on a 1 minute 50 course.
On a more positive note, I scored my best Super-G result the previous day, and cannot wait to ski more speed (Downhill and Super-G) next season.
In addition to the individual discipline results, I also took home second place overall at the British Senior and Junior Championships.
I am currently back in the team apartment in Austria taking a few days off before getting back on the slopes for some ski testing and then some (what I am sure are going to be tough)land training
involving hiking and a lot of gym sessions before finally heading back home for the summer to finish school.
A huge THANK YOU has to go out to ASDA, BSS (Britsh Ski and Snowboard), Salomon, LSC (Ladies Ski Club), my parents and everyone who has helped me this season, I could not have achieved any of these results without your support.
