The young Scottish skier sets her sights on her first games

  • Discipline(s): Slalom
  • D.O.B: 30th December 1993
  • Hometown: Perth

Charlie took up skiing in the Cairngorms in Scotland aged 3, where she would visit her grandmother. From a young age Charlie’s speed was undeniable, becoming the first British girl to win an international race, aged 14. As part of the Scottish Alpine Ski Team, Charlie moved up through the British rankings and started to compete in FIS races before leaving school in 2012 to pursue her goals as a full time athlete.
Breaking on to the World Cup in 2013 a series of encouraging results earmarked the young Scot for future successes. But in November 2014 a near career ending injury cast doubt over the racer’s future in the sport. Fracturing four vertebrae is a nightmare for anyone, let alone a full time athlete, but Guest has recovered well to fulfil all necessary Olympic qualifying criteria and currently sits just outside the world’s top 100 in the rankings.
