- From the section Winter Sports
British alpine skier Alex Tilley aims to "fly the flag" for GB women during her first full World Cup season, which begins this weekend in Sölden, Austria.
She is the first British woman to attempt a full World Cup campaign since four-time Olympian Chemmy Alcott announced her retirement after the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russia.
Speaking to BBC Sport's Nick Hope, Tilley says she wants to inspire other British women to take up the sport and believes she can qualify for the season-ending World Cup finals in Switzerland next year.
