IT’S all downhill for 17-year-old Nicole Ritchie — and she’s loving it!

Nicole was part of a technical slalom team from Craigholme secondary school which competed in the British Championships in Pontypool last Sunday.

Three girls were included in the team competing: Tony Middleton (15), Olivia Wallace (13) and Nicole (17).

Nicole came first in the Scottish Schools Championships and it was her third time winning the event in a row.

She is also the three-times winner of the (all ladies) Scottish Championships which takes place at Hillend — home of the longest artificial ski slope in Europe.

All the girls are members of Glasgow Ski Racing in Bellahouston Park.
