The last two weeks saw the youngest of the local 'ski sisters' leaping ahead of her siblings in their medals tally.
Yesterday, Elektra (9) skied to second place and a silver medal at the British Ski Cross Championships, at Chill Factore., Manchester.
It was bronze for Isobel (14) in Youth Female and bronze in the overall British ski cross title.
Isobel said: "Wait until we go to the Brits at the British Freeski Championships in Tignes France in April. We will show these indoor racers what the Brown sisters are made of, some of the jumps on that course are as high as a bus!!"
The Rossignol sponsored sisters train in Val Thorens, France on the infamous world cup ski cross slope with head coach Timothee Theaux, former world cup ski cross racer and current World Champion Jean- Frederic Chapuis.
Last Sunday (22nd) was the British Moguls Championships also at Chill Factore. Another outstanding performance by the three sisters with a 3rd place and Bronze medal for Elektra and Jemima (11) in 5th place in kids category. A successful day for the eldest sibling with 3 trips to the podium. Gold in her age group, Bronze in the dual moguls, head-to-head competition and a Silver in the overall British Moguls title.
All 3 girls attend Abbotsholme school where they are the ski team. Last Monday they travelled to Hemel Hempsted to represent Abbotsholme in the British Independent School ski racing Championships. Racing in the senior school section despite half the team being from the prep school they came a very commendable 10th place out of 19 schools. The highlight being a bronze medal for Isobel in the u16 girls slalom and having her medal presented by British ski cross racer Emily Sarsfield who is part of the GB team for the winter Olympics in Sotchi in February.
