Emerson enjoys Alpine Ski season success

Alumni stories

Emerson Proctor, who left Moulsford in 2020, is a full-time athlete at Apex2100 International Ski Academy in France, and has had some strong results over the first few months of the ski season. In February he travelled to Italy to compete in the English Alpine Championships where he was the top U16 boy with a podium in every race with a win in the Super G, a second place in the Giant Slalom and a third in the Slalom. This followed on from some strong performances in the Anglo Scottish Championships in January where he won the Super G and was third in the Giant Slalom.

Emerson has had two selections to the GB Children’s Team this season and in January was selected for the most competitive international race in Italy where he finished in the top 19th in Slalom and 21st in Giant Slalom. He was only the second ever U16 boy from GB to get a top 20 placing in this event.

He continues to ski within the French system and last week qualified for the French National Championships in Serre Chevalier. He produced an outstanding performance in Slalom narrowly missing the podium with a 4th place overall but producing the fastest time on the first run in a field of 140 skiers – the top boys in France. He then followed this performance with 16th place in Giant Slalom and 32nd in Super G.

Emerson is back at his school in Tignes for the last month of the ski season and is training hard for the British Championships in April. This is his last year racing in children's races and next year moves into FIS and the start of the journey towards the World Cup. This season's results have secured his position as GBs top U16 boy and his decision to go full time in France is certainly paying dividends.
