Emily Sarsfield is an eight time British Ski Cross champion, competes at World Cup level and has produced World Class performances including 11th place in World Cup events and won a Europa Cup on essentially a self funded programme with no coaching support. This year Sarsfield will be supported by the ABC Group it has recently been announced.

Alongside the news of the newly appointed BSS GBX coach (ski cross and snowboard cross) and the recent announcement of her new sponsorship, she aims to break into the World Top 10. The new sponsorship for Sarsfield comes from ABC Group, an independently owned service company covering the construction industry in London and the South East for the past 30 Years. Emily  missed out on the Sochi games in 2014, but with the new set up, coach and support from ABC she is training hard and extremely focused on making GB proud in Peyongchang.

Andrew Buchanan MD of ABC Group commented, “Having followed Emily’s career over the last 12 Years, we have been so impressed with her dedication, grit and sheer determination, not only in what is a very challenging sport, but also her efforts to raise funds to support herself at the highest level. Now that she has the chance to compete at the 2018 Olympics we are proud to be able to give her the extra support she deserves!”

“I am so excited and motivated by the new support, having ABC on board is a dream come true, it allows me to focus 100% as an athlete, I can finally be on a level playing field with my peers and put my all into making GB proud. It’s been a tough road to get here, but I’m determined and looking forward to the journey ahead with #TeamABC !”
