Three of Britain’s top ski and snowboard athletes, including Winter Olympian Snowboarder Aimee Fuller, shared their personal journey and top achievements with hundreds of students from Chobham Academy in London.
Charlie Raposo, who is currently ranked Britain’s best Giant Slalom skier and has competed at the World Championships, World Junior Championships, European Youth Olympics, as well as the North American Cup Tour and European Cup Tours; teammate Nick Moynihan, member of the Delancey Senior Alpine squad who took 1st in the British Championships GS, in Tignes (2015); and Winter Olympian Aimee Fuller who recently claimed 7th in both the South Korea and Czech Ladies Snowboard Slopestyle World Cup talked to children ranging from 5 years to 11 years old in three school assemblies.
During the assembly they presented their personal training videos and spoke about their biggest achievements, in hope to inspire their young audience to work hard at their own goals.
“It was a lot of fun to come in and inspire the kids today at Chobham. They were all super responsive and it was very rewarding,” said Charlie.
One of Chobham Academy’s students, Kara Maloney (aged seven) commented, “I absolutely loved meeting Charlie, Aimee and Nick. The best thing was learning about doing snowboard tricks. It was good to meet an actual person from the Olympics. Everything they said was amazing.”
After each of the presentations, the athletes also offered a chance for the children to dress up in their equipment and then afterwards, they gave away various prizes during a Question and Answer session for those interested to find out more.
