Ellie Is All Set For A Full Winter Of Mogul Racing November 08 2013
(If you need any more info on The Olympics then have a look at the official website here).
Here's what she had to say about it:
'It’s been a hectic summer!
After working so hard on my physical strength and conditioning in the Spring, I spent pretty much all of August and September training 'down under' in Australia as well as the USA.
There were quite challenging conditions at times, but generally good winter snow., that allowed me to focus mainly on speed and air practice.
I then had a quick trip back to the UK before I was off again, this time to Zermatt Switzerland where I was training high up on the Glacier Paradise. At nearly 12,000 feet, it was great for altitude training too!
The full length course and conditions this year were just fantastic! Word spread around early that there was going to be an excellent training course set up and since there are now less than 100 days left until the Sochi Olympics, all of the world's World Cup teams and best of the rest were there; making for awesome training!
Each day felt like training before a World Cup event with the US, Canadians, French, German, Swiss, Swedish, Japanese, Russians,Norwegian, Finish, Czech and Korean teams all eyeballing each other!
I am so looking forward to the competition season ahead and now head out to the USA for some pre-season training.
I am excited to have met the Olympic qualification criteria for TeamGB already and the trick now is to make sure I remain in the top 30 in the World when the qualification window closes in January 2014!
