BOURNEMOUTH skier Sophie Stocker secured a slice of redemption after she won a silver medal in the under-14 Super G at the 2019 GB Alpine Championship.

The 13-year-old bounced back from crashing out in two events at last year’s competition in Tignes to cross the line in 1:00.20 on her way to second on the podium.

She was just more than a second behind event winner, Suffolk talent Honor Bartlett.

However, the Ballard School student was still delighted to pick up a medal as Super G is not her strongest discipline.

“I could have sent my run a bit faster but I’m really happy with my place and how it went,” Stocker said.

“Second is a pleasing result because super G is not my strongest discipline but I still enjoyed it.

“Last year I crashed in the Super G and slalom so this year has definitely been a lot better.

“I went off later in the order so the track was a bit bumpier but actually think it helped because the snow and track were faster by that point.

“I had a good start and after the first section I thought I was going to miss a gate but I somehow took the risk by taking a different line and it actually made it much faster because I was not looping around the course.”
