After claiming second and third place in the slalom and giant slalom at the English Alpine Ski Championship in Bormio, Colne skier Beth Widdup added another third place on day four.

Last week, we reported on Beth’ as she finished second in the slalom and third in the giant slalom in Italy.

And the 19-year-old was then third in the National Junior Giant Slalom, and second English racer on Sunday in the Slalom.

After claiming three English titles last week, things didn’t go quite to plan for Darcie Mead (18, Kingston Upon Thames) who skied out on the first run after “attacking too much”.

Megan Jenkins also abandoned the course in the first run, and Scottish racer Cara Brown had a fall, and despite getting back up, lost at least seven seconds in doing so.

Anna Henderson was the fastest British woman after the first run, just 0.3 seconds ahead of Abbie Macey (20, Birmingham).

And after the second run the results stayed the same, with Anna Henderson the fastest British skier and second overall in the Under 18 category. Abbie Macey finished second fastest Brit and Beth third fastest.

Cara Brown put in a fast second run of 56.58, but it wasn’t enough to make up time she lost in the first run.

Veronica Olivieri from Italy took the overall title with Anna Diaz-Prieto and Marta Jimenez from Spain second and third respectively.
