Chemmy Alcott has skied her final competitive race. She has competed to the highest standards in four Olympics during her 23 years as a professional skier, has five top 10 World Cup finishes, a high of eighth in World Cup rankings, and is seven-time British National Alpine Ski Champion. Yes it’s the end of a career of actively being the most successful female British alpine ski racer, but coming first in your final race is not a result of someone who is fading out.
Easter is the perfect time to take a romantic break.
