Tom Jarrold - Keeping Up With The Best
In February last year, we published an article about Tom Jarrold, who had recently started at Framlingham, and was making headlines with his skiing exploits. Tom's father, Stuart, has been in touch to tell us that Tom is still on course to achieve his dream of an Olympic Games place in 2012.

Click on Read More on the right of the page for the rest of the story. Tom, now 14, has just returned from competing in the British Alpine Racing Ski Championship at Les Menuires. His best performances were ninth place in his first slalom race, and 15th in the Super G (super giant slalom), thus keeping him within the top dozen British skiers in his age-group.

Tom said: “Obviously, I would like to have finished higher, but I'm reasonably pleased, especially as I had only one week of training before the event and it was the first competition of the season.”

Meeting the costs associated with Tom's training remains a constant headache for Tom's father Stuart. If any OF (particularly the keen skiers amongst you) has bright ideas or deep pockets Stuart would be extremely pleased to hear from you. Please click here to Email Stuart Jarrold.
