The countdown is officially on. The XXIV Winter Olympic Games is set to kick off in Beijing on the 4th of February 2022. With Team GB’s squad looking in fine form for the year ahead, we sat down for a chat with Slopestyle & Big Air phenom and all-round good ol’ Yorkshire lass, Katie Ormerod.
For many of us, 2020 was a banana bread-filled blip that we’d sooner forget, but Katie Ormerod was grafting hard, both on and off the hill, sewing seeds of hope and success that have every chance of taking root and flowering in triumph come next year.
“The first ever British snowboarder take home the honour, Katie racked up the most FIS points over the winter to be crowned the World Cup Champion”
Fresh off the back of an incredible winning season, Katie is the proud owner of the 2019/20 Slopestyle Crystal Globe. The first ever British snowboarder to take home the honour, Katie racked up the most FIS points over the winter to be crowned the World Cup Champion. Katie pulled off a clean sweep and went four for four on the podium, putting a solid 400 points between her and the nearest competitor.
