BIOGRAPHY

Emily Sarsfield is Britain’s leading ski cross athlete, accumulating eight national titles over the years and has competed on the World Cup circuit since 2006.

She suffered a potentially career-threatening leg injury in February 2009 at the test event for the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games in 2010, which subsequently ruled her out of selection for the Games, with surgery and intense rehab instead taking up her time.

In 2010, Sarsfield created British skiing history by becoming the first female to win a Europa Cup event although she was forced to undergo further knee surgery in the run up to the 2015 season.

A return to competition again followed with a number of solid performances earned selection for her maiden Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang in 2018.

The ski cross athlete finished in 22nd place at the Games, in South Korea, with a time of 1:18.25.
