British Ski and Snowboard reacts to the passing of David Poisson

British Ski and Snowboard are sad to learn of the passing of French National Ski Team racer David Poisson after falling during downhill training in Canada. 

David won a bronze medal in Downhill at the 2013 Alpine World Championships and was a podium finisher at the Santa Caterina World Cup Downhill in 2015. He raced at the British National Alpine Championships on several occasions and will be well remembered for his big personality as well as his huge talent and strength. 

Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and everyone at the National French Ski Federation. 

An official statement from the French Ski Federation is available on their website: http://www.ffs.fr/news/communique-officiel-13-novembre-2017-47092
