Scottish skier needs support
Date Posted: 14.47hrs on Sat 12 Sep 15
This girl desperately needs support, she has had a pretty tough time.she broke her back last November, fought back to compete in the World Championships, scored her best results ever then got kicked in the teeth by British Ski & Snowboard (who have pretty much removed all her funding). She was brought up on Scottish snow, now moving into the top 100 in the world and wanting to put Scotland on the podium at the next Winter Olympics. [makeachamp.com]

well done sspeirs - everything helps. If we can get a Scottish skier on the podium it helps the whole of Scottish skiing. To everyone, a lot of small donations will make a huge difference.

Would the podium spot be for Team Scotland?...Or Team GB? ;-)

A Team GB appeal may well increase donations from the non-Scottish
Winterhighlanders.

Team GB appeal is already there for those who find that appealing.

Personally I'd rather see a dedicated Scottish team.

Thanks for the link.

She is part of the Scottish team but it goes under GB internationally (like the Olympic teams) but she always makes it clear her career started in the Scottish Highlands. There was a post that her first rehab runs last season were up at Cairngorm.

Yes I understand that. I am not saying anything negative about that but to state my preference that there should be a Scottish international team, instead of GB.

Yes, it would be good - in the skiing world Team GB is often essentially Scotland

Glasgow, West Dunbartonshire and Dundee could put forward some athletes for the Scotland team, the rest can stick tae the brit team for now until you all sort yersels oot !
