Racing downhill at more than 80mph was not unusual for Britain’s number one female alpine skier, Chemmy Alcott. She began skating competitively when she was just eight years old. Now retired from the sport after a 20-year career and working as a hugely popular Olympic Speaker, Chemmy has competed in four Olympic Games.
At one stage, Alcott was ranked as eighth in the world and she has gone down in history as being the first and only British ski racer to win a World Cup run. Recognised as a speaker who uses her energy and enthusiasm to get across the message that dreams can be achieved, Chemmy has an incredible track record in alpine skiing.
In the Senior British National Alpine Ski Championships, the Olympic Speaker won an astounding 36 – yes, 36 – gold medals. As an overall winner and in the downhill, Chemmy came first in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
In the Super G, she won golds in all but three years between 2001 and 2009, while in the alpine skiing combined, she came first in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009. Alcott also won gold medals in the giant slalom over seven years and the slalom over six.
These medals complemented the golds that she won in the Junior British National Alpine Ski Championships – four in 2002 and two in 2001.
