British success at Freestyle Ski and Snowboarding World Championships

March 2023

GB Snowsport have had their most successful freestyle world champs in history with three medals and four top 10 rankings. The British women in particular have come out on top, proving they can perform and outclass the best in the world.

Mia Brookes made history becoming the first ever British Snowboard Slopestyle World Champion at just 16 years old. With a silver medal already in the bag, she threw down a Cab 1440 (the first female ever to do so in competition) on her last run and casually scooped the Gold.

Charlotte Bankes and Huw Nightingale are also re-writing record books claiming Britain’s first ever gold in the mixed team Snowboard Cross. After disappointment in their individual events, it was a day of redemption and an incredible turnaround for both athletes.

After winning an X Games gold in the Superpipe in Aspen, Colorado, Zoe Atkin confirmed she belongs at the top. Despite difficult conditions, the 20 year old took silver in the Ski Halfpipe while only just missing out on the gold medal by less than two points.
