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.
