Nia Boty suffered heartbreak on the slopes as she twice missed out a medal at the English Alpine Skiing Championship.
The 15-year-old St Albans Girls’ School pupil had been well placed in the giant slalom at the event in Bormio, Italy, before failing to complete her second run.
But she gathered herself back up to produce a determined display in the slalom, finishing in an excellent fourth place but just three seconds away from a bronze.
She said: “I was very pleased.I chose the right line and turned really well.“I wish I hadn’t crashed out of the giant slalom. It was quite disappointing but it made me really motivated to do well in the slalom.
“It was a shame I couldn’t quite get a medal but my first run in particularly was good.
