Skier Harry is a winner


SKI whizz Harry Crosham has sped away from five recent major championships with a fistful of medals.

The 8-year-old ski racer, is now rated as one of the best Mini 1’s in the country after returning from the Scottish championship in Braehead with a Bronze medal.

Harry, a Wilberfoss Primary School pupil, was presented with his medal by Finlay Mickel, one of Great Britain’s most successful Downhill skiers.

The youngster started his run of success by winning the Giant Slalom Minis Race in Manchester over the summer, winning four Gold medals and overall Trophy.

Harry trains twice a week at SZ Racing Club, Castleford under the watchful eye of his coach and Dad, Lee Cosham,  Head Race Coach for SNO!Zone, Castleford. 

For the third year, he has been invited to train at the prestigious Race Ski Camp in March run by Olympic gold medallist Austrian skier, Benni Raich in preparation for BSA Inter-School Championships in Les Houches, France and Aiglon College Cup in Villars, Switzerland.

Dad Lee said: “Harry wants to get into the Great Britain “GB” team and for him to achieve his goal he needs to train with other up and coming child skiers from all over Europe.

“We now desperately need a sponsor to help Harry get to these training camps / European races and to buy ski equipment.

“Harry desperately needs a new pair of skis for the coming season after his current skis delaminated during his last ski race.

“If anyone is willing to sponsor Harry however small, we would greatly appreciate your help.

“We would also like to thank Armstrong Massey Landrover and Contech UK for sponsoring Harry for the Benni Raich Race Camp in Austria in August and to BBC Radio York, Sandie Dunleavy for letting Harry interview Graham Bell, BBC TV’s Ski Sunday presenter on her show.”
