A quote from Miss Earl, Wrenn Academy PE Teacher:
Ellie has since competed across Europe and North-America at World Cup, World Championship and Winter Olympic events. Competing at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games in 2010, at just 18 years of age as the youngest member of the GB team, Ellie proved that if you set your mind towards something and work hard, you can achieve anything.
After overcoming injury and many ups and downs in her skiing career Ellie is now training for the next Winter Olympics in Korea in 2018, where she hopes to fulfil another dream by winning her first Olympic medal. Her signature trick is a back flip ‘X’ and she competes on the World Cup circuit for TeamGB, ahieving seven podiums in the European Cup and also finishing second Overall in Europe in 2015 – a first for British Freestyle Skiing.
On her appointment as an Athlete Mentor, Ellie comments: “Sport has taught me many lessons in life and made me a more determined, focused and hard-working individual. I hope that by sharing my experiences with the young people I meet I will help them to realise their potential and inspire them to be the best they can be.”
