Two city skiing stars have been selected to Snowsport England Park and Pipe Academy.

Kieran Kerr, 12, and Mason Ferebee, 18, both train at Snozone in Milton Keynes.

Being part of the Academy will allow the duo to be part of training weekends at Loughborough University where they get access to world-class facilities.

They will also get support with gymnastic sessions, nutrition and fitness, as well as the opportunity to take part in on-snow camps in Europe throughout the winter.

Kieran said: “It means everything to me to get selected. I am hoping that being part of the Academy will hopefully help me eventually become part of the GB Park and Pipe team and ultimately the Olympic squad.”

Masonadded: “It makes me proud to represent my country as well as having people supporting me as I progress my passion. I am hoping to start competing internationally this season, and work towards a world ranking.”
