KATIE SUMMERHAYES: ATHLETE PROFILE

Katie got into skiing and more specifically freestyle at an early age and now competes professionally in ski slopestyle events. After qualifying at the Sochi 2014 Slopestyle finals in 3rd and finishing 7th overall, she is looking to improve upon her results at this year’s Winter Olympic Games.

In Katie’s athlete profile, she speaks of some of her first experiences skiing at Sheffield Ski Village, her ski heroes and what she thinks it takes to compete in the Olympics.
