James Lee ( Horsley year 11) wins bronze in the 2019 National snowboarding Championships

James Lee (Horsley year 11), recently travelled to Manchester to compete in the 2019 National snowboarding championships (BRITS –  British Indoor Slopestyle Championships).

“The course was super varied, with tons of different jumps, rails, and other features, with a lot of riders competing, from Devon to Glasgow. During practise, I planned the tricks I was going to land in my competition runs (we got two runs each, with the one with the best score counting).

But, when it came to my competition runs, I decided not to spin out of the first rail, as it was a very hard trick, and was too risky at the time. On the first rail, I did a back blunt, landing switch. I then did a switch front lip on the pipe, then hit the jump, doing a backside 360 (the jump was very aggressive, so I didn’t spin very much). Finally, I did a front boardslide on the stall feature, ending my competition run.

After our competition runs, we went back into the room that we registered at and I was placed in third for under 16’s. I was so gassed that I won a bronze medal in the UK national competition , and I can’t wait to get back to Austria to train and compete internationally.”

Sports Day was highly competitive and so much fun for all involved. Events included track, field, fun relays and our favourite event Tug of War. Great way to finish the term! 😃 Photos courtesy of Ali Kittermaster. Gallery will be available from Monday.
