Maximilian Pini (3rd, NH) and Jack Cunningham (3rd, H) have both been selected to represent Great Britain in the upcoming International Youth Races: Maximilian in Andorra, Spain next week and both pupils in Abetone, Italy in April. This is a fantastic achievement, particularly as only four get selected, two boys and two girls.
Maximilian and Jack are members of the U14 England Alpine Development Squad run by Snow Sport England to support talented athletes to progress in alpine racing. The criteria include achieving a top eight placement in the skier’s birth year across three disciplines: Super-G, Giant Slalom and Slalom, in specified national competitions.
Both pupils took part in the Ambition Championship in Austria last week where Maximilian won a Gold medal for the Giant Slalom and Bronze for the Slalom, in which Jack won Silver (pictured).
