Another slopestyle skier from Sheffield, 18-year-old Katie Summerhayes, is out to make her mark at the Winter Olympics
A serious cruciate knee injury threatened to burst Katie Summerhayes’ dreams of making the Winter Olympics. But, after reconstructive surgery, she returned to training in November and won silver at the final competition before the Games – a World Cup event in Gstaad. Sport caught up with her just before her flight to Sochi – where, like fellow Sheffield native James Woods, she is a big medal hope in slopestyle skiing.
