Tuesday 4th Feb Update
Dear everyone
After yesterday’s classification the races have begun. We have heavy snow at the moment but the skiing goes ahead. Alice is in the superG Grand Slalom this afternoon. Please look at the SpecialOlympicsGB Facebook page where you will find an interview with Mrs Willans.

Update on Tuesday: Alice won silver medal , only three tenths if a second behind the gold winner. Tomorrow is Super Giant Slalom and Alice is going for gold!! The weather has been tricky for the skiers today- heavy snow, strong winds and very cold! Tonight for dinner the athletes and supporters( families ) are having wraps and soup- it’s just like school lunch!

Update from Wednesday

Alice won GOLD! In the Super giant slalom- three seconds faster than the athlete in silver medal place! Well done Alice!
