Name: Xavier Poynton

Discipline: Alpine Skiing & Racing.

Age: 7 years old. 

Best result: 3rd in the U10 British Indoor Championship

Ranking: N/A


About the Athlete: 

I am the youngest person ever to have been picked for the Ambition Racing Team and am the Welsh U8 Schoolboy Champion. I work really hard when I’m training and even if I crash, I just get back up and try again.  I love to go fast and ski with my friends. My favourite hobby is skiing and I would ski everyday if I could!  But I also like other sports such as tennis, gymnastics and swimming.


My Inspiration: 

I love watching people skiing on the TV, my favourites are Marcel Hirscher and Dave Ryding.  I thought Menna Fitzpatrick was amazing, I tried on her googles to see what she could see.  It must be very scary going that fast and not being able to see properly.


My goal:

My goal is to master linking turns on one ski, I can do it a bit but would like to get much better at it.  I would also like to try Super-G!!!  I’ve met Dave Ryding but would like to meet him again and talk to him properly.  I am really looking forward to my first race abroad.
