I'm Victoria Bell - I'm a ski racer competing in Slalom and Giant Slalom. I represented Ireland at the European Youth Olympics in Liberec, Czech Republic (www.eyowf2011.cz) in 2011 and at the World Junior Alpine Ski Championships in Rocarasso, Italy in 2012. I felt honoured and very proud to carry the Irish flag at the closing ceremony of the Youth Olympics and at the opening ceremony of the World Junior Championships. 

I was selected for the fully-sponsored FIS Development Programme in both the 2011/2013 and 2012/2013 seasons and I was extremely proud to be selected to represent Ireland at the World Alpine Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria, in February 2013, where I had the most wonderful experience.

I have now completed my A level studies at school and, with the benefit of an Olympic Scholarship, awarded by the International Olympic Committee, I am a full time athlete in the build up to the Sochi Winter Olympics, with funding to duplicate what I would expect to earn if I was working full time.
