We arrived yesterday in the Olympic village to a very warm welcome from the Olympic village volunteers and staff. I have already made a few Korean friends!

This morning I had the chance to free-ski on the slope next to the technical alpine course in Yongpyong resort- very steep and well prepared slopes. The snow is amazing!

Just back from an amazing week in St Moritz where I managed to pass both qualifying races in GS and Slalom to compete with the world's best racers in the Championship races, finishing 52nd in Slalom and 59th in Giant Slalom. The Swiss public and organisation were absolutely fantastic. I was very happy to catch up with my team-mates Conor, Cormac and Kieran, and to meet Kelsie. Very proud of this Team Ireland!
