Team GB’s skiers and snowboarders have rewritten history over the last four years. Snowboarder Jenny Jones got the ball rolling in Sochi as she became the first Brit to win an Olympic medal on snow with bronze in the slopestyle. Gold and bronze followed for skier Madi Rowlands at the Youth Olympics before bronze medals from Izzy Atkin and Billy Morgan in PyeongChang further demonstrated the upward trajectory of British snowsport.
Justin Taylor-Tipton, 17, has been following the PyeongChang 2018 coverage closely with British ski slopestyle idols James “Woodsy” Woods and Tyler Harding chasing medals at the Games. Inspired by the strong ski and snowboard presence at the Winter Olympics, current TASS recipient and previous SportsAid beneficiary Justin is one of the next generation of Park and Pipe hopefuls aiming to emulate this success in the future.
Halfpipe hopeful Peter Speight is in the form of his life as he looks to make a big impression at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics tomorrow. He is one of Britain’s leading freestyle skiers and has been earmarked by many as an outside bet to bag a medal. Coming into the competition on the back of a fourth-placed finish at the Halfpipe World Cup event in China – his best result yet – the 25-year-old is in buoyant mood.
With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
