Welsh Athlete Update

February 3, 2017
We have a record number of Welsh snow sports athletes out on snow this season, training hard, racing well and doing us proud! Here are some updates on how they're all getting on...


Menna Fitzpatrick (Ladies Visually Impaired Category) took bronze medal at the World Championships at the start of this week in Tarviso Italy. Returning from a serious hand injury this was Menna’s first return to the podium after a few 4th place finishes in her category.

Menna also won the Disability Sport Wales ‘Emerging Athlete Award’ at their annual celebration of Welsh Sport.

Chris Lloyd (Mens Standing Category) finished in 9th place in Super G at a World Cup in Austria in Mid January. Although Chris was selected to compete in the World Champs he suffered a knee injury whilst competing at World Cup and has taken time out to recover.

Maisie Potter continues to gain experience at World Cup level in Boarder Cross events and competed in Bulgaria this week. Maisie gained two successive wins at FIS level boarder cross in the Czech Republic in January.

Luca Mai Lane Hopkins competed in the Rookie Fest Comp in Livigno Italy finishing a very credible 7th in her first international event.

Olivia Ward has made selection to the European Youth Olympic Festival in Turkey (12-18th February) having scored PBs in GS at a number of FIS events in her first year FIS racing. One of only five young GB skiers selected to this event this is a very good level to have made.

Zac Pierce has continued to make good progress scoring PBs in FIS at our Welsh Champs gaining results alongside British Team selected athletes of his YOB.

Giselle Gorringe and Oliver Weeks have competed in Childrens International races for Great Britain in the past month, gaining some great experience and good results!
