Potters Bar skier Robert Poth ends Britain's long wait for a victory in the Czech Republic
9:00am Thursday 31st January 2013 in Sport
Robert Poth’s fine alpine ski season continued as he became the first British skier in more than 20 years to celebrate victory in the Czech Republic.
Poth, from Potters Bar, stormed to an impressive win at the FIS International Children’s event Ski Interkriterium – the first time the competition has been won by a British competitor for 15 years at this level.
The Under-16 British Alpine Ski team member secured top spot on his first run and recorded an equally strong display in his second run to take the victory in a strong international field.
British Ski and Snowboard Alpine performance manager Sean Langmuir said: “Robert came close last year but crashed out on his second run after being ahead in the first run. So it is especially rewarding for him to come back this year and win.”
Poth is currently looking for assistance in the form of financial support.
