World Champs Join Holmlands as Paralympics Approach
Holmlands are delighted to announce we will be working with British Parasnowsport skiers Millie Knight and Brett Wild to provide media support ahead of the Winter Paralympic Games taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea in March 2018.
Millie - a visually impaired skier who lost 92% of her sight by age six - and her guide Brett Wild, are the reigning World Para Alpine Downhill Champions, having taken gold in Tarvisio, Italy in 2017.
Millie 18 says, "I was lucky enough to go to the Sochi Paralympics and compete for Great Britain in the slalom and Giant Slalom, where I came 5th in both. I also carried the flag at the opening ceremony. Sochi was a fantastic rehearsal for the South Korea Games in 2018. I will be older, stronger and much wiser and will have worked with a superb guide. These next games were always my ultimate goal."
Millie and Brett also secured silver medals in the Super Combined and Giant Slalom events at the World Para Alpine Championships, in a season which saw them secure a further eleven medals on the World Cup Circuit, including seven golds.
Millie's mum and manager says, "Millie and Brett are working so hard to achieve success on the slopes, we thought Holmlands would be the perfect partner to help us achieve success off the slopes too. Their passion for skiing and knowledge of the media will be vital in ensuring we can capitalise on making the most of the Paralympics before, during and after the games. We're thrilled to have their support at a vital time in Millie's skiing career."
Founder and Director of Holmlands, Cameron Hall says, "Millie has the world at her feet and the ability to achieve great things - and having Brett as her guide provides the perfect combination to accomplish her ambitions. We are honoured to become part of "Team Knight" as we help to manage Millie and Brett's media profile at this critical time."
