Hemel Ski Race Club member Robert Poth has won a silver medal on the fourth day of the 2014 English Alpine Championships in Bormio.

Robert bagged his medal in the FIS slalom discipline and he said: “I’m really excited with my position today and with my continuous training I’m determined to achieve further success.”

Robert skis for Aktiv Ski Racing Academy with his favourite disciplines being slalom and giant slalom.

Team GB U18 alpine ski racer Robert Poth has enjoyed a successful start to his career as a junior athlete competing on the world FIS circuit.

This year, 16-year-old Robert stepped into a new challenging age category, competing against other racers aged 16 and above.

Robert is a Team GB U18 winter athlete with a British Olympic Association Silver Passport, but there is no training and race support from the British Ski and Snowboard Association for this squad.

He is training with Richard Breese and Stephen Edwards at the Aktiv Ski racing academy which has joined forces with Inspire on the European Development & Excellence Programme based in Italy.

He also receives strength and conditioning support from Performance Hertfordshire as a selected athlete on the Hertfordshire Talented Athlete Programme, but is looking for sponsors to help him along his pathway.
