Snow Sports NZ is thrilled to announce that Adam Hall and Billy Dravitzki will be representing New Zealand at the 2023 FIS Para Alpine World Ski Championships, set to be held in Espot, Spain from the 21st - 29th of January.
Adam, who claimed the silver medal in Slalom at the 2021 Para Alpine World Champs, will be competing in the Slalom event. This is also the event in which Adam claimed the Bronze medal at the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games.
Billy has been skiing from strength to strength this season and will be competing in Downhill, Super G, Giant Slalom and Alpine Combined. Competing in the men's sitting category, he has achieved four podiums already this season in North American FIS Para races and we look forward to seeing him in action at the World Champs.
Jane Stevens, Snow Sports NZ Para High Performance Programme and Pathway Manager, said; "I am very proud of both Adam and Billy and their achievements over the past year. This will be Adam's seventh World Champs appearance, and his vast experience will undoubtedly set him in good standings for the event. For Billy, this is a career first event for him and provides him with an opportunity to benchmark himself against the best in the world."
