Skiing brothers race to regional success

    Ollie Turner-Moore and Seb Turner-Moore

    Two brothers who are pupils at Bennett Memorial School in Tunbridge Wells raced to end of season success in the London and south east regional dry slope skiing series on Sunday October 16.

    Ollie Turner-Moore, 12, was crowned the Male U14 Overall Champion for 2016 in the London and South East Regional Snowsports Association event.

    In the five races this year, Ollie placed on the podium at each race, winning a gold medal, two silvers and two bronzes. He clinched the title by two points at the final slalom race of the season on the Brentwood dry ski slope.

    Older brother Seb, 14, grabbed third place overall in the Male U16 category with a determined display in his three individual timed runs and head-to-head dual slalom runs.

    “Both Ollie and Seb started skiing at the age of five, initially on family holidays,” commented their father, Ben.

    “They love it and took up racing a few years ago. They are members of the Bowles Ski Racing Club and train for two hours every Friday night on the slope at the outdoor centre just outside Tunbridge Wells.

    “What they’ve achieved this season is brilliant, and a great reward for their dedication and hard work at training.”
