Bronze medal for Jasmin Taylor

Teenager Jasmin Taylor has added to her growing list of medals after claiming bronze in the duel sprint event at the World Junior Championships in Espot, Spain.

The 18-year secured a podium finish, having earlier finished fourth in the classic race. She then ended the later sprint race in sixth.

Taylor’s bronze is the first ever medal picked up by a British telemark skier.

Earlier in the month, the Colchester-born, Ipswich-based skier competed in a World Cup race in France, finishing ninth overall, and third junior (a personal best) in the classic race.

“For now, this season I am pleased with what I have achieved and I done much better than I expected,” said the British number one.
