Along with the games, Chemmy Alcott who is Britain’s number 1 female downhill skier, ranked 8th in the world and 3 time Olympian, was on hand. So I felt no pressure what so ever when she asked me if I wanted to challenge her to some skiing!

Needless to say she won, but it was a really good race and a very good way to experience the game. It was a real privilege to both meet and race her and it was great talking to her about her experiences and what she thought of the game.
