Harriet is one of our TalentAid recipients. Harriet has been in dominant form this year after being crowned English giant slalom champion. She competed in the March 2009 National Championships which were held in Bormio, Italy and claimed a gold medal in giant slalom and silver in the super-g race but unfortunately a broken binding exiting the start gate halted her bid to take a treble in her specialist and favourite event, the slalom. Putting behind that disappointment, Harriet still managed to come second overall.
We have been supporting Harriet since 2006. When support was first granted Harriet was already an accomplished junior. From the age of 11 she had been part of the national circuit reaching junior level in alpine skiing in January 2004 where she travelled to Austria to compete in the British Alpine Racing and Skiing Clubs (BARSC) Championships where she won three age group gold medals.
Harriet now hopes to compete in the 2014 winter Olympics. We continue to provide what support we can to allow Harriet to achieve her ambition and to go for gold. During 2008, 62 young people received assistance through TalentAid. Five sportsmen and women including an athlete, swimmers and a cyclist are on various schemes for entry to TeamGB each hoping to achieve success at the 2012 Olympic Games.
