Zander Bohle Squad: British Cross Country Youth Squad Y.O.B: 2000 Club: British Nordic Development Squad www.britishnordic.org @Zander_Bohle Career Highlights: 1st - Huntly Nordic Open Championship 2.8km, 2013 I started skiing when I was 2 years old. As a 3 year old I spent the winter in Geilo, Norway, and as part of my nursery there we were allowed to ski every day. I love both Cross Country skiing and Slalom. In the winter of 2014, I spent two months training with Fossum IF in Norway and when I returned to Scotland, I had decided I wanted to compete more and joined the British Nordic Development Squad. Last winter I competed twice abroad; in Sjusjoen and Hokksund (both Norway), the highlight being the 5km classic race in Hokksund. I train a lot with my brother and Dad, both roller-skiing, cycling and running, and on top of that I am a decent tennis player. I enjoy being part of the British Nordic Development Squad, and I have a lot of fun with my team mates. My greatest achievement to date has been winning the 2013 Huntly Nordic Open Championship 2.8km race which was my first cross country ski race ever, and my goals are to compete at the Junior World Cross Country Championships. Thanks to my Mum and Dad for their support, and shout out to my Dad who introduced me to cross country skiing at an early age.
