Robert Poth Team GB selection


ROBERT POTH WINTER SEASON 2014/15 Newsletter No2-January 8th

Team GB Selection – Alpine Skiing

 I am delighted to inform you that today I received confirmation from the British Olympic Association that I have been selected to represent Great Britain in Alpine Skiing at the 12th European Youth Olympic Winter Festival (EYOF) in Vorarlberg and Liechtenstein from 25th – 30th January 2015. Team GB will comprise of 15 athletes from Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Figure Skating and Snowboarding.

My selection to this prestigious event would not be possible without the enormous support from my family, friends and coaches.  I would like to thank everybody who has sponsored and supported me particularly after my recent serious ski training accident when I unfortunately sliced my left knee open with one of my skis, requiring helicopter assistance and stitches! I am indebted to the excellent sports physiotherapists  and Strength and Conditioning  coaches at ‘ Hertfordshire Body Balance’  based at Performance Hertfordshire University for  helping me to reach a full recovery in a short space of time.

I am so excited to have been selected for the EYOF 2015. I have worked extremely hard in order to achieve the selection. This is the first time many of us will have been part of a team with athletes from other sports. I’m looking forward to being able to get to know the other competitors and supporting GB across the Festival. It will be a great learning experience for me and a chance to race against Europe’s best junior skiers and many future Olympians. Hopefully the week will help my own ambitions to one day compete at the Olympic Winter Games.
