Young skier Lucinda Dilworth has been selected to ski for England following a recent selection weekend in Manchester.

The talented skier was chosen to attend the selection weekend in Manchester, which involved fitness tests, on-snow skill-based exercises at indoor snow slope Chill Factore and strength and conditioning and nutrition sessions.

Lucinda will represent England in dry and indoor slope races across the country, as well as at the English Alpine Ski Championships in Italy next February.

The English Alpine Ski Squads, managed by national governing body Snowsport England (www.snowsportengland.org.uk), are the stepping-stone for young skiers as they work towards skiing for Great Britain, and the ultimate aim, the Winter Olympics and World Cup circuit.

Snowsport England Chief Executive Tim Fawke said: “The enthusiasm and dedication from our athletes was really impressive and we have got some promising talent in all of our squads.

“We aim to help support all the athletes in their progression as ski racers as much as we can and help them fulfill their dreams of becoming professional skiers.”
