GB Snowsport is delighted to announce the 11 athletes who have been selected to represent Great Britain at the Alpine World Junior Ski Championships in Austria’s Saint Anton am Arlberg resort.
The 42nd edition of the Championships, which run from 16-25 January, is expected to see over 500 of the best young Alpine skiers represent 50 countries across 11 events in one of the biggest gatherings of Alpine skiing talent in the world.
The British squad features some of the nation’s finest young Alpine talent, with four of the team having raced in previous World Junior Ski Championships in Bankso, Bulgaria in 2021 and Panorama, Canada in 2022.
Daisi Daniels, who is set to compete in her third World Junior Ski Championships, shared her excitement at the challenges ahead:
“I’m really excited to have a third shot at the World Junior Ski Championships. The last two times I’ve competed there have been amazing for my technical development and gave me a real feel for the world’s biggest competitions. The GB team looks really strong, and hopefully we can show that out on the slopes.”
Calum Langmuir, who will be making his World Junior Ski Championships debut, said:
“It’s an honour to be selected for the British squad for these Championships, and I’m going to go out there to give it my best shot. I’m really pleased with my form so far this season, and if I can carry that into these Championships then I feel like I can hopefully put down a bit of a marker for the rest of the year.”
