In November, Brett and I went to Austria to train on the Hintertux Glacier. Training went well and progress was made.
I was home for nearly 2 weeks before heading back out to Reiteralm, Austria, for some great training ahead of the start of the World Cup events in St Moritz and Kuhtai.
We have 8 races before Christmas – these are important for selection to the Paralympics GB team going to South Korea – I will keep you posted.
In my time off at home, Brett and I attended The Times Sportswomen of the Year as nominees for the young women’s Category.
The award rightly went to Ellie Downie and we had a fantastic time meeting so many incredible sporting men and women.
The following week I was invited to do a Q & A, on stage, at the SportsAid Ball in London. What an honor this was, as I was sharing the stage with sporting royalty, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.
I have also been nominated and Shortlisted for the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year. This was announced on Blue Peter and I got a much longed for Blue Peter badge.
I am up against some sporting greats – Ellie Downie again, and Phil Fordham. I am unlikely to win this award but I am really happy to have been nominated.
The highlight of the last couple of months was a fundraising event ‘The Gold Run to the Games Ball’. This was run by Anita Gabrielsson Brack and her amazing team. It was organized to help provide funding for the British Para Snowsport Team – Thank you so much Anita!
As I write this blog, I am in St Moritz waiting for the snow to clear to start the World Cup season. There is too much snow and the slopes are closed. It’s a bit frustrating but it means I can catch up with some admin
Brett and I would like to wish all our sponsors and supporters a very merry Christmas and an awesome New Year.
