Welcome to my web site!

I'm Florence (Flo) Bell, I am 17 years old and I am an Alpine ski racer, representing Ireland; I am in my third season of FIS competition. In January 2012, I was really happy to represent Ireland at the inaugural World Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck (www.innsbruck2012.com) where my slalom result was the best Alpine skiing result for Ireland at any Olympic Games. I was very honoured to have been selected and I had a wonderful experience. The 2012/2013 season was good for me and the 2013/2014 has been great so far.   I currently have the lowest Slalom and GS points in Ireland, ranking me as the undisputed number 1 in the Country . I won the Overall title for my age category and also the Overall title for all ages at the British Schoolgirls Races 2013 and our school retained the GS title as well as winning the Overall School trophy and the Overall Team trophy. I was excited to represent Ireland once again, in Alpine skiing, at the European Youth Olympics in Romania in February 2013 (www.eyowf2013.ro). I finished last season off in Japan where I scored a personal best of 62 points in both Slalom and GS.  Top of my achievements so far was when I was chosen to compete for Ireland at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia in February 2014 (www.sochi.ru).  It was an absolutely amazing experience.
