Dave ‘The Rocket’ Ryding flies in Winter Olympics

23 February 2018

Dave Ryding finished a truly amazing ninth in the Olympics Men’s Slalom in PyeongChang early yesterday morning. After the first run he was placed 13th but the Rocket picked up 4 places on his second run finishing only 1.17 seconds from the overall winner Sweden’s Andre Myhrer.

The school is so proud of David’s feat and the way he has flown the Nations flag for slalom skiing. The many hours of dedicated training on the slopes at Pendle and more recently across Europe and the world in the pursuit of his dream.

We wish David every success over the coming years and truly hope he is able to medal in 4 years’ time in Beijing 2022.
