Bright future for skier

DANETRE School’s Finlay Davies, 12, took first place in the British Indoor Ski Championships held in Leeds over the weekend.

It was also the final round of the British Indoor Grand Prix ski series. Going in to the final round, Fin was level on points and took the trophy with two amazing two runs.

Fin is sponsored by Sno!zone in Milton Keynes and Salomon Skis.

He trains five times a week at the Sno!zone where he juggles school work and training.

Fin is hoping to carry his current form into the 2012 Alpine Ski racing season where he will be spending the majority of the winter training and racing at the ARA Academy in Aosta Valley, Italy.

His main objective this coming winter season is to be selected for the GB Children’s Alpine Ski Squad and compete for Great Britain internationally.
