Raposo takes sixth in Brasov
Charlie Raposo produced Team GB's best male alpine skiing performance at a European Youth Olympic Winter Festival with a sixth-place finish.
Raposo produced a strong run in the giant slalom in Brasov, Romania in a tough field of 97 competitors to secure the best British alpine finish at a Winter Festival since Chemmy Alcott won a silver medal in 1999.
Raposo said: "I'm really pleased with the result but not so much with my skiing. I felt like I made a few mistakes in the second run when I was pushing really hard - it was right on the edge."
