International Schools Grand Slalom Success for Emily
Emily, Year 12, has recently competed on behalf of The MFG, in the 2017 schools skiing championships. This year, Emily was in the Under 18 category, which is at the top end of the event, so the competition was even tougher. Once again, she was competing against skiers from UK private schools and also international boarding schools, where some even have a winter skiing campus.
The Aiglon Cup was hosted in Switzerland and after the first day, Emily finished 7th on the Grand Slalom, a result which Emily was particularly proud of, as last year she placed in the top 20 skiers in the event. In the British Schools event, Emily came 9th in the Slalom, with only a second between her and first place. In the Grand Slalom she also had a great run down the hill, but unfortunately she came wide of the fourth to last gate, and as a result just missed both second and third place.
7th place in the international schools is a fantastic result, however,and we would like to congratulate Emily on the pure grit she demonstrates in her aspiration to be the best she can be on the slopes!
