Slippery Slope for Oliver
Congratulations to Oliver Black in Upper Elements (Year 7), who skied to victory in the Irish Open Slalom (Under 12s) held recently in Dublin. Oliver also showed his prowess on skis the previous day, when he came second in the Ski Club of Ireland International Slalom. His combined times meant he finished 22nd overall, for all age groups including the masters.
It’s Oliver’s best result of the year so far, but he’s now hoping for more success in the forthcoming Welsh Alpine Championships in Switzerland and the English Alpine Championships in Italy.
