PWC Snowboard Parallel Slalom Results & Photos

Photographer: Cpl Jamie Dudding RLC This evening saw the Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Australian Defence Force take to the slopes in the PWC Snowboard Parallel Slalom Floodlight Final. The racing saw slips and spills but the Army emerged triumphant taking the top spots in both the men's and women's finals.   This year (2016) marks the 10th anniversary of the Inter Services Snow Sports Championships held in Meribel, France. Personnel from the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force (RAF) compete in various disciplines throughout the week. The Combined Services Winter Sports Association (CSWSA) can trace its roots to pre-war competitions held by some of the pioneers of skiing and bobsledding and celebrates its 65th anniversary in 2016.  The Association exists to promote excellence in winter sports within Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, through the provision of annual all ranks competitions organised in a manner which affords prestige to those competing and enables subsequent entry into national and international competitions for the most talented.  These sporting opportunities enhance self-discipline, courage and physical fitness; they provide vital recuperation and focus beyond the operational commitments of service personnel.  Historically a significant number of servicemen and women have represented Great Britain in winter sports disciplines, a trend which continued in Sochi 2014.  The sports supported include the following at annual Inter-Services events: Ski, Snowboard and Telemark Competitions, held in France. Cresta Run held in St Moritz, Switzerland. Ice Sports Competition: Bobsleigh, Skeleton Bobsleigh and Luge, held in Winterberg, Germany. Nordic Competition, including Biathlon, held in Ruhpolding, Germany.

Congratulations to the medal winners and all the athletes for a truly spectacular competition. Particular thanks go to our race sponsors PwC, and our Royal Patron, Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex, and Juliet Stuttard of PwC, for  presenting the prizes.
