Amazing: I am selected to represent Ireland at the EYOF at Voralberg/Liechtenstein which will take place between 24 and 31 January 2015.. Four Alpine Skiers will represent Ireland at these Games :- Tess Arbez, Gary Skinner, Enda Bolger and Ben Alselmi. I am so excited to be a part of this major event. I hope I will be able to race my best in Malbun!
Back from Liechtenstein and Austria.
I was very happy to meet the rest of the team: the athletes Ben, Enda and Gary (great guys!), our Chef de Mission Anne, our Physio Eimear and Coach Alain. So proud also to be designated as our team's flagbearer at the Opening Ceremony at the EYOF. The ceremony was amazing. We took part in the Nations Parade, just like the "real" Olympics. I think the atmosphere during the ceremony boosted us all. The races were in Malbun in Liechtenstein. In Giant Slalom, my best discipline this season, I came 20th! Not bad considering all the big ski nations had sent their best girls born in 1997 and 1998 to this event.
