We’re delighted to have received this note from Bruce Murray, Communication & Sponsorship The British Nordic Development Squad:
We’d like to give a huge thank you to the Skiers Trust for once again supporting the Development Pathway of British Nordic. The pathway has led Andrew Musgrave, Andrew Young and Callum Smith to multiple Olympic Games for Team GB including selection for Pyeongchang 2018 and helped them compete at the very highest level in World Cup rankings. We have a number of younger athletes now coming through to pick up the baton and its fantastic to see youngsters taking up roller skiing throughout the UK, something we have strived to promote with the ski clubs as much as possible. So, we hope to have even more Nordic ski athletes competing for places in 2022 and beyond.
British Nordic has not only grown in overall stature on the World stage but in the development of young up and coming talent which the Trust support helps us achieve. One of our key aims is to reduce financial barriers to entry as much as possible and make it accessible for all.
British skiing is definitely on an upward curve and we look forward to cheering on all the skiers and boarders at Pyeongchang to another successful Games for Team GB.
