While many of you may have been reading that there was distinct lack of snowfall in the Alps before Christmas, the KRH Nordic Ski Team were preparing themselves in the depths of Norway. Now they are enjoying the good New Year snow that has come just in time for the competitions. This week they are competing at "Divisionals", but last week they raced in Hochfilzen, Austria in the Royal Armoured Corps Competition. Here is the report and some choice photographs from the Team Captain
From the Royal Armoured Corps Competition prize giving last night, we came away with 12 medals and a trophy:
In the classic race, the KRH won a team Bronze owing to the efforts of Lt OVC, 2Lt Selfe, LCpl Morell and Tpr Cheveau. While Tpr Dowse won a Gold for Top Junior Novice Category, Lt OVC was awarded Gold individually.
In the Biathlon Relay, the KRH bagged themselves another Bronze but this time with Lt OVC, 2Lt Selfe, LCpl Padee and Tpr Cheveau. Tpr Dowse again excelled himself with Gold for the Best Junior, and Gold for the Best Junior Novice. This secured him the trophy for Best Overall Junior in the Competition.
All in all, good results! Let's hope for the same from Divisional. Hussar!
