About Katie

Katie Summerhayes became the first British female skier to win a Freestyle World Championships medal when she picked up slopestyle silver in Kreischberg, Austria in 2015.

The Sheffield-born skier had previously won the Junior World Championships in Valmalenco, Italy, two months after finishing seventh at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

Summerhayes won her first World Cup medal with slopestyle silver in February 2013, repeating the feat 11 months later in Gstaad. She had to wait until November 2017 to win a third, with silver in Stubai, Austria.

She then went on to make her second Olympic appearance, at PyeongChang 2018, though an injury-hampered build-up saw her match the seventh-place finish from four years previous.
