GB Snowsport are pleased to confirm an eight-athlete squad will compete for Britain at the Nordic World Junior Championships and U23 Championships in Whistler, Canada.
The Championships, which begin on 27 January, will be taking place outside of Europe for only the second time this century following the 2017 Championships in Park City, USA, and will see British representation across Sprint and Distance events in both Championships.
The U23 Championships will see Britain’s newest World Cup Squad member, Joe Davies, joined by Gabriel Gledhill, Beinn Horsfall, James Slimon, and Cameron Cruickshank in a five-man squad.
The Junior Championships, meanwhile, will feature Tabitha Williams and Sophia Wilson who, like Davies, joined the British programme from the Canadian system this year, compete alongside Logan Duncan.
The U23 squad boasts extensive international experience, with Davies and Horsfall both having competed in previous U23 World Ski Championships, all members having previous World Junior Championships experience, and Davies with three World Cup starts under his belt. The World Junior Championships squad will see all three athletes making their Championships debut.
