Oakhamian trials for U16 GB Alpine Racing team

Form 4 student Seamus recently trialled for the U16 GB Alpine Racing Team and will find out if he has been selected early next year.

Seamus is currently in the U16 Team Evolution Alpine Racing club, as well as a member of the England Squad and represented Great Britain last year as a member of the British Children’s Team.

He is sponsored by renowned ski manufacturers Rossignol, who see his potential in snow sport disciplines. He not only practices in the UK at the Castleford Indoor Ski Slope in South Yorkshire but also trains overseas and last summer he skied with the U18 group in Chile for 4 weeks.  This winter he will train with his Club in Austria balancing his skiing with schooling.

Director of Sport Iain Simpson said, “Seamus is an outstanding young athlete who trains with a maturity and vision that is beyond his years. He has a clarity in what he wants to achieve in his skiing and this is evident in the way he trains. I have no doubt he will go onto achieving great things in his skiing career”

Seamus hopes to qualify for the 2019 or 2021 European Youth Olympics and aims to finish top in his age group this upcoming season. 

We wish Seamus the very best of luck and look forward to following his progress.
