Any young skiers looking to make it big should take a look at Sam and Honor Clissol.
The unique brother and sister combo had the good fortune to begin skiing at young ages, and have worked and trained hard to achieve the level required for a national team. The two were both overall champions and individual winners of their respective age groups in the British Children’s Championship in Meribel last week.
They were both selected for the children’s GB squad after the 2009 British Championships and joined the training programme provided by Snowsports GB.
Sam, who will soon be turning 15, has not only been competing internationally, but has acquired lots of race experience by racing with the top French boys in his age group. He was also selected by the French to race in La Scara, considered in the ski world as a real “Children’s World Championships” and used as qualification for the selection process for the French team.
