Success for Great Britain at International Children’s Races in Andorra and Czech Republic
The Great Britain Children’s Team has come away from the recent International Races in Andorra and Czech Republic with a bag of medals, and in Andorra, took the title of second overall team behind Italy – winning 15kg of M+Ms!
In Andorra,10 young skiers represented Great Britain over four days of racing, with parents and supporters accompanying the team.
The pick of the races was the Boys’ Under 14 Slalom, which saw Ted Slade take the win and the chance to stand on the top of the podium.
With medals being awarded for the top five positions, Great Britain consistently performed well across the races with Sophie Foster claiming four top-5s in the U14 races including two third places, Daisi Daniels securing three 4th places in the U16 races, Sarah Woodward 3rd in the U16 Super G and 5th in the U16 Girls AC, Owen Vinter 4th in the U16 Boys Super G and Olivia Foster taking 4th in the Girls U16 GS. See full results below.
In the Czech Republic, all the athletes had a parent or parents supporting them and along with the excellent race organisation, everyone had a great time.
All the racers gave their best and Great Britain came away with two podiums; Siena Horton secured 4th place in U16 Slalom and Tom Hudson finished 3rd in U16 Slalom.
Over both events the athletes were a credit to themselves both on and off the snow. Well done all!
