News has been released that British Ski & Snowboard are going to be investing in more ski and board sports outside their park and pipe programme, which has been the focus of funding in recent years for the past few Olympic games.
This is great news for all of our sports and of course the athletes themselves,” said Vicky Gosling OBE, British Ski & Snowboard CEO. “It is not only a sign of the progression British snowsports has made in recent years, it also shows UK Sport believe we will continue to generate more Olympic medals on snow, something that hadn’t even been achieved before 2014.
Our aim is to be one of the top five snowsports nations by 2030, and we need to be competitive across a range of disciplines if we are going to get there.
Vicky Gosling, CEO of British Ski & Snowboard.
UK Sport has confirmed around £24 million in funding for the Beijing 2022 Olympic cycle width around a quarter of that total, £6.75 million, going towards British Ski & Snowboard. Parasnowsports will receive up to £3.5 million, which is up by 26% since the PyeongChang cycle.
