Rowan Cheshire

Freestyle Skier, Team GB, 7th Winter Olympics Halfpipe 2018

Still only 21, Rowan is widely regarded to be the future face of British Winter Sport, as she looks to become the first British skier ever to win a medal at the Winter Olympics.

Team GB freestyle skier Rowan Cheshire burst onto the international scene in 2014, when she became the first British woman to win a Halfpipe Gold medal at World Cup level at only 18 years old. In the process, she quickly established herself as one of the most exciting prospects across all Winter sport. Since making history as a teenager, Rowan has firmly established herself as Britain’s number 1 halfpipe skier, competing on the international circuit and was a strong medal contender for the Winter Olympics in Sochi 2014. However, an unfortunate fall during training just a few days before left her with a concussion and she was forced to retire from the competition. This setback only made Rowan more determined to achieve her goal and since then, after a brief stint working as a model, she has continued to compete on the international circuit and achieved multiple top 4 finishes. Now, all roads lead to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, where Rowan will be a very strong medal contender in the Halfpipe, as she looks to amend her Sochi heartbreak, achieve her dream and make sporting history.

Excited to get back to the mountains doing this again next week!!
Happy mothers day to 2 of the best women i know, my mother and grandmother! Love you both!
