Talented Skier Wins Medals in Chamonix
Congratulations to Ibble Watson, Year 7, who has achieved some fantastic results whilst skiing with the British Ski Academy in Les Houches, Chamonix.
In her first event, The Equity Interschool Challenge, Ibble won both the first and second races and came second in the third race. These impressive combined results enabled her to take first place overall and win the Gold medal for girls under 12 years of age.
In the Giant Slalom Cup, Ibble took the top position for her first descent, with snow conditions for the second race slowing her speed slightly to achieve second place. Overall she came second to win the Silver medal.
In fact, Ibble’s results were so impressive that Malvern St James took the fourth best school position against other school teams with 4 members, even though she was our only competitor! We are delighted to announce that the Downhill Only organisers have now earmarked Ibble for the Junior British Team.
