NELLIE’S WORLD CUP DREAM
Hello my name is Nellie Rose Talbot
I am a 16 year old Alpine ski racer from Vail Colorado and I need your support.
I have been on skis since before I could walk. At the age of five I began ski racing with Ski and
Snowboard Club Vail. From there I discovered ski racing was my true passion.
This past season I have had many accomplishments as a first year FIS athlete:
I had a 3rd place finish in the Nor-Am Giant Slalom at White Face Mountain New York
Qualified for the Junior World Alpine Championship in Sochi Russia
Placed 6th in the Alpine Combined and 14th in the Giant Slalom in my first U.S. National Championships in Sun Valley ID.
This year I am currently ranked 1st in the world for my age, in Super Giant Slalom
4th in Giant Slalom and
9th in the Alpine Combined
For this 2016-2017 race season I am a new member of the U.S. Women’s Alpine Ski Team’s, Development Team.
Ski racing is an expensive sport and I am not a fully funded athlete. That is why I need your help to raise $35,000.00 to support my training, traveling, and racing expenses.
With your support I can continue my journey towards success and become not just one, but many steps closer towards accomplishing my dream.
