The final stint of the 2021/22 season show British athletes continuing to excel
Fresh from her Paralympic Winter Games debut in Beijing, Shona Brownlee was back in action in Winter Park Resort, Colorado, grabbing a NorAm Silver in the Giant Slalom. After a first run that left her needing to make up time, a brilliant second run saw Brownlee notch the fastest women’s run of the day and catapulted her into second place.
In the Ski Cross World Junior Championships in Veysonnaz, Switzerland, Tommy Dade, Scott Johns, and Patrick Young all put in encouraging performances to finish 24th, 25th, and 42nd respectively, though the main relief from the competition was confirmation of Johns’ health after a bad crash saw him helicoptered off the hill.
At the World Rookie Tour, there were superb results for snowboarders Mia Brookes and Charlie Lane, with Brookes taking victory in the Grom Women’s Slopestyle ahead of Lucia Georgalli of New Zealand and Czechia’s Vanessa Volopichova, while Lane came second in the Grom Men’s Slopestyle between the Finnish boarders, Ville Jukola and Erik Jurmu.
