Youth Olympics, Monthey, Switzerland 2005
What an amazing week ! As part of the opening ceremony we paraded through the streets of Monthey. The fireworks at the end were better than Disney's ! The Olympic Flame had been brought all the way from Athens. Being part of the GB Team was brilliant..we even got asked for our autographs by some kids ! The ski team was Callum Campbell, Ali Macfie,me, Joanne Ryding, Dani Bryson & Lousie Thomas.
Me, Ali, Dani & Jo
The races were delayed due to too much snow. The GS was held in Les Crosets, the first run went really well, but on the second my ski came off, I was really disappointed. At the SL at Morgins, I straddled three gates from the finish and had to hike back up. I was last out of the gate on my second run, but ended up 4.7 seconds behind the leader....so pretty good really. The Super G was the last run....2km long and pretty scarey. I didnt ski my best but managed to make some points so it was good to finish with a result !
