Welsh Skiers Chase Paralympic Success

March 5, 2018

With the Olympics finished, we can finally concentrate on the Paralympic Winter Games starting in Korea 8-18th March 2018. Snowsport Cymru Wales are super excited by these games as we have two athletes competing as part of Team GB. Both Menna Fitzpatrick and Chris Lloyd will be competing in the alpine skiing events, starting with the downhill on March 10th.


Menna competes in the visually impaired category and will be participating in all discipline competitions of alpine skiing. Coming off the back of a win at the last World Cup race this year (in Canada) Menna is a real prospect to medal at these games.

Chris Lloyd competes in the mens standing events and will ski in the downhill and Super G races.

We wish all the Team GB athletes great luck at the games, ride fast and enjoy the whole experience.

Ever wondered what it would be like to ski at 60mph with a visual impairment? Watch this clip: http://www.youtube.com.watch?v=3Mi82mRaVR4&feature=youtu.be
