What Have I Been Doing?

This month, I have taken part in two Alpine races (Anglo Welsh and British championships) I
achieved a personal best in the Anglo Welsh with a run of 18.57 seconds that gave me a 6th place position. I came 7th in the British championships. I took part in the Castleford Junior Freestyle Jam 2016. This is a slopestyle competition. I came 2nd in the U13’s category.


To Pass The Time...

For the past couple weeks, I have mainly been skateboarding, mountain biking, Freerunning and Parkour, Ice skating, ice hockey, badminton and also running. I also spend my spare time reading and playing my alto saxophone.

Super Excited!

I am really excited to begin training with The Blackburn Junior Hawks ice hockey team. I am also really looking forward to the Scottish indoor slopestyle championships. I am hoping to improve on the bronze medal I won at this competition, last year.

Training On A Regular Basis

I regularly attend strength & conditioning session at Richard Mason Fitness (a local gym where I have a personal trainer) Freerunning is a great help for freestyle skiers. I attend weekly sessions regular trampolining. On the snow I attend twice weekly race training sessions. I attend sponsored athlete’s training sessions with Guillaume Berliox. I also try and get some leisure skiing in as much as possible. It’s a really big help when there are regular features out at Chill Factore. It means that I can really hone my skills.

The Sky Is The Limit!

I have started to attend the earlier kids race academy training sessions to help out the coaches and hopefully to inspire some of the newer skiers. I tell them that you can achieve as much as you want to and tell them that I have only been skiing for 2 years and 4 months. I tell them that as long as you work hard and enjoy yourself, the sky is your limit!! I am going to attend shred club too so that I may hopefully inspire some of the newer freestyle skiers to compete. I would especially like to encourage more girls to join in with freestyle skiing.
