ISA National Ski Championships

On the first day of term our race squad travelled eagerly to Hemel Hempstead for the ISA Ski Championships. We arrived in time to organise our equipment and have a few practise runs down the slope. Everyone had two chances of achieving a good time on the course and the squad were confident.
 


There was an anxious wait at the top for everyone as they watched the other competitors complete their run. After the first set of times had come in everyone was happy with how they had done, all eight of our skiers posting a time they were happy with, Henry Otto Lorenz leading the way with 14.90 seconds.


Knowing they had good times on the board everyone knew they could be aggressive and try and better this in their last run. The course was starting to get icier, meaning it was a tad quicker but also more difficult to keep control on.


More good times were posted on the second runs and after everyone had finished we had a short wait for the results to come in. We were delighted when we were presented with 1st place for our ‘A’ team in the ‘Mixed Team’ category. Harry Dunning, Henry Otto Lorenz, Sophy Pearce and Sophie Hartley-Wiley’s times all contributed towards this fantastic achievement and they should be delighted with their efforts.



Our ‘B’ team of Daniel Jemeljanenko, Alice Alder, Jacob Foster and Zayd Khan all raced brilliantly with Daniel in particular posting a very competitive time.
 
All round it was a great day and all eight skiers can be proud. Everyone is excited for the next event at the National School Ski Race in Manchester on 4th June.
