SKIER | ALPINE RACER | TEAM IRELAND
Gloria and her sister Giorgia are the skiing prodigies of an Austrian mum and an Irish dad and live in Austria so there are plenty of slopes to practice on!
Skiing since the age of 3 and competing since the age of 8 Gloria trains at WSV Ramsau am Dachstein. Her steady progress has seen her compete in the Irish Dry Slope Championships in 2016 and 2017, and she has represented Ireland in 2018 at international FIS children’s races and in spring 2019 at the CIT FIS races in Italy and Austria, scoring FIS points.
An ambitious athlete, Gloria has her short-term sights set on qualifying to represent Ireland at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Lausanne in 2020 and the Junior World Ski Championships in Norway. She has a busy training and competing schedule in order to give her the best chance including being part of an FIS Development camp in Chile.
Further out, Gloria’s goals include competing in the 2022 and 2026 Winter Olympic Games.
