My best party trick is… “I can wiggle my ears.”

The geekiest thing about me is… “I am a Physics major at University.”

Two truths and a lie… “I was a snowboarder before turning to skiing, I broke my wrist mountain biking, I make bracelets during my free time.”

I won’t shut up about… “The latest crime novel I am reading.”

The pandemic has taught me… “how I missed traveling and made me conscious about other people’s germs.”

GB Snowsport is pleased to announce the squad which has been selected to compete at the 2021 FIS Freeski and Freestyle Snowboard World Championships in Aspen, USA from 10 March to 16 March

The squad includes three World Championship medallists, four World Cup winners, three X-Games medallists, six Olympians and one Winter Youth Olympic medallist.

Members of the freeski team, who are already out in Aspen training this week, include reigning Slopestyle World Champion James Woods, Izzy Atkin who won a ski slopestyle silver medal at the X Games in Aspen last month and Gus Kenworthy, an Olympic Silver medallist, and World Cup winner.

The snowboarders include 2020 Crystal Globe winner Katie Ormerod who has come back from injury, who in her last competition in Kreischberg came 8th and Gabe Adams who just came first at the Gotschen Europa Cup Big Air.

Sophie, Olympic Team Manager: “After a difficult season with changes to the competition calendar, we’re really happy to be able to compete in Aspen at the World Champs. A huge thanks goes to the organisers and FIS for helping make it happen. It’s been a difficult year for everyone, however we go into the Champs with a strong team, who are looking forward to flying the GB flag.”

The geekiest thing about me is… “I am super interested in environmental science and climate change, and spend my free time learning about it.” 

Tell me you’re a snowsports athlete without telling me you’re a snowsports athlete… “I would rather go on holiday to the mountains than the beach.” 

A shower thought I had recently… “There is a different version of you that exists in the minds of everyone who knows you or knows of you.” 

When I’m not training or on snow you’ll find me… “Taking my dog on a hike, at the gym, hanging out with friends, or doing school work.”  

Guilty pleasure… “Scrolling through TikTok longer than I probably should.” 

Best travel story… “In 2017 I won a trip down to Argentina during the summer doing big mountain skiing. It was an amazing experience and a culture shock to me.” 

Typical Sunday… “If I am somewhere that has snow I am usually out skiing around with friends.”

Weirdest gift I have given or received… “A bag that looked like it came straight out of a cartoon.” 

Two truths and a lie… “I used to play football in highschool, I can speak 4 languages, I used to snowboard.” 

I won’t shut up about… “My Dog Cooper.” 

The pandemic has taught me… “I am much more adaptive and flexible than I thought I was.”
