Charlie Guest made her Olympic Winter Games debut in PyeongChang, placing 33rd, and helping Britain reach the quarter-finals of the mixed team event.
However, it may never have happened after the Scot suffered a career-threatening crash on the slopes in late 2014 which left her with four broken vertebrae.
She was back on the snow a mere six weeks later and victory in the ladies slalom at the 2016 British Championships marked the culmination of an 18-month journey back to full fitness.
A skier since the age of three, she had already served notice of her talents when, aged 14, she became the first British girl to win an international children’s race.
Guest has also won the British slalom title four times, in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018, and the giant slalom crown in 2014.
