Kinver Ellie’s Ski Success
Congratulations to Kinver High Sixth Former, Ellie Jackson, who recently represented Kinver High School in the National Indoor Schools Ski Race.
Ellie was the fastest overall female racer, being only 0.4 seconds away from the fastest male racer.
Ellie has raced in her first full international events, at indoor slopes in both Holland and Belgium. Racers from Great Britain, Finland, Belgium, Holland, Slovenia, USA, Turkey, Portugal, Iceland, Czech Republic and Slovakia, France and Germany all took part. In Belgium, Ellie was racing against one of their top racers who took part in the last Winter Olympics! She has achieved some amazing results, reducing her seed points from 999 to 125. It’s early days yet, but based on these race results she’s currently GB ranked 2nd female in slalom for her year of birth.
She recently spent 2 weeks in Austria training on the Molltaller glacier and will be heading back later this month for another set of races.
We are delighted to be supporting her dreams … she is training hard, whilst studying with a goal in sight for next year.
