The International Ski Federation (FIS) has approved the application submitted by Bryn Nicholas to compete for GB Snowsport.
Having previously competed internationally at SBX for Ski and Snowboard Australia (SSA), Nicholas requested a release from SSA to compete for GB Snowsport in October so he could further his abilities in Europe and be part of an exciting new era for GB Snowsport.
Nicholas holds a UK Passport and qualifies to compete for GB Snowsport through his British born father. He said in a statement made to the FIS: “I am a committed, passionate and developing SBX racer determined to compete to the best of my ability.
‘I am aware that GB Snowsport is expanding and growing its competitiveness and I wish to be part of that growth and development. I am now looking forward to joining up with my GB teammates and putting in the hard yards this season.”
Dan Hunt, Performance Director at GB Snowsport said: “We are really excited to have Bryn on board. He is an emerging young talent on the SBX circuit, and we are looking forward to working with him to reach his potential.
‘GB Snowsport has quality athletes across all disciplines and the desire shown from Bryn to join our set up just goes to show the strength of the organisation and the opportunities that exist.”
Bryn first started making headlines when he was named in the Emerging Talent program by SSA in 2017. He now becomes the number one ranked male SBX athlete in the GB Snowsport set up and will compete in his first competition in Europe this weekend in Austria.
