Gourley finishes second in dramatic race

The overall winners of the 2015-16 IPC Alpine Skiing World Cup in giant slalom have been decided after a series of tantalisingly close and dramatic races last week at Aspen Mountain, USA.

In the men’s standing, VIS athlete Mitchell Gourley and Russia’s world champion Aleksei Bugaev were neck-and-neck after the first run, both registering the same time.

However it was Bugaev (1:43.30) that emerged triumphant to claim his third giant slalom win of the season and make sure of his place at the top of the World Cup rankings.

Gourley (1:44.38) held on for second ahead of Austria’s Christian Bernhard Schneider (1:44.96).

This week for the first time in almost a year I had a speaking gig, in person, face to face. In the last year I have done a number of gigs but because of Covid-19 they have all be virtual. That’s okay but it certainly isn’t the same as being face to face with your audience. To be able to gage their body language, their facial expressions, or how much you have them interested in your story is so much easier when you are in the same room and not looking at them on a screen.
