Oh my! I have been selected to compete for Ireland at the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Vail and Beaver Creek from 4th – 16th February 2015.
My American dream (and what's more with my brother!).
Over 700 athletes from more than 70 nations !
Vail and Beaver Creek Colorado
Huge, Grand, Exciting, "Awesome"
Our Irish team had three men: Maxime, Pat, Conor, and two other girls, Florence and Victoria (nice meeting you all!). We spent two weeks training in the same gates as the world's best skiers. An amazing experience before our actual races. No surprises here but I was quite happy to finish both my Slalom and Giant Slalom runs, a breath away from qualifying for the second run (reserved for the top 60).
