Way to go Connor "The Giant of Slalom" Wilson! #goBigDogs #skifast https://hubs.ly/H08shdS0

...Dunkeld’s own sensational ski racer, Connor Wilson (20) has won the 2017 South African National Alpine Ski Championships – his second year running.

He won the title at the Fédération Internationale de Ski (FIS) series of slalom competitions at the Tiffindell Ski Resort in the Eastern Cape on 31 July.

Now back in Joburg briefly, the former St John’s College matriculant explained he had been a part-time student at the Carrabassett Valley Academy in the USA, a ski and snowboard academy, and training at Sugerloaf Mountain for the past two years.

Wilson also trains at Afriski Mountain Resort in Lesotho and has a Swiss coach, Cedric Maret, who assists when he goes to races.

After reaching the pinnacle of ski racing in South Africa, twice, Wilson hopes to be selected for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
