Zoe Gillings wins Team GB snowsport athlete award

From iomtoday: ZOE Gillings has won the British Olympic Association’s Athlete of the Year (Snowsport) award for the second year in succession. The Ronague woman enjoyed an incredible return to world class form following her career threatening injury in 2005, when she was initially told that she would never snowboard again. Currently ranked sixth in the world, she has her her sights firmly set on winning the gold medal for snowboardcross in the 2010 Winter Olympics and is already firmly back in training after the festive break. The BOA award helps confirm that Zoe is Britain’s best hope for a snowsport medal at next year’s Games. (IN VANCOUVER!!!)
