April 3, 2014 21:17 pm
Chemmy Alcott brought the curtain down on nearly two decades of competitive skiing by completing a hat-trick of the titles at the British Championships in Meribel.
The four-time Olympian, who announced her retirement earlier this month, followed up on her victories in the Super G and downhill with a commanding win in the women's super combined.
She finished nearly two seconds ahead of nearest rival Cara Brown while Alice Macaulay claimed the first senior medal of her career.
“This has been my best ever British Championships. I just had fun out there today and totally took the pressure off myself. It was a bonus to win," said Alcott.
"When I was in the start date I thought ‘this is the last time I will be in this position’ and I had to fight back some tears.
"But then as I started skiing I really enjoyed it and seeing all the people I care about in the finish area was really special.”
Nick Moynihan won the the men's super combined, finishing just ahead of Dougie Crawford and Jack Gower.
