Paralympian Jade retires from competitive sport

0 0
Sochi ski heroines Jade Etherington and her guide partner Caroline Powell have announced their retirement from competitive sport.
Jade who won four medals in Sochi will now concentrate on her career as a geography  teacher of young people. She hopes that their achievements at Sochi will help to inspire others to take up and enjoy skiing in the future.
Caroline will continue her career as a ski instructor in Switzerland.
Like many of her team mates, personal funding has been an issue and a struggle for Jade, this in a week where UK Sport has gone out to public consultation on its future funding strategy, after recent debate and some criticism of its 'no compromise' approach.
The perception that all GB elite athletes are fully funded remains something of a myth it seems.
