Silver medal for Oakham skier at English Alpine Championships

Oakham School skier Seamus earned a podium finish at the English Alpine Championships in Bormio, Italy. Seamus, who is in Form 2, is part of the training programme for the GB U14 Ski squad, having been selected over the summer after taking part in a series of races and fitness tests. Seamus has been skiing since he was 4, racing since he was 7, and now trains weekly indoors, as well as travelling to Austria every few weeks to train outside. In the U14 Super G competition, Seamus came very close to gaining the top spot, missing out by just half a second to one of his academy teammates. Seamus also took third place in the slalom. The English Alpine Championships help provide an early glimpse of the stars of tomorrow, with British Olympians Chemmy Alcott and Dave Ryding both having competed at the competition. Seamus was “really happy” to receive his medal, and now has his sights set on the British Alpine Championships, where he is hoping for a top 3 finish.
