Cormac Comerford is a 20-year-old alpine ski racer from South Co. Dublin, Ireland. Cormac started racing at the age of 10 on the small artificial slopes of Kilternan and is now on track to becoming one of Irelands next winter Olympians.
He has represented Ireland at a European Youth Olympics, two Junior World Championships, been selected for two World Championships and in February 2017 achieved a top 50 position in the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
The young athlete aspires to become Irelands next Winter Olympian in alpine skiing and represent Ireland in European and world cup circuits while increasing the profile of his evolving sport at home.
Along with Cormac's rigorous training and racing schedule, he balances an engineering degree with the help of a sports scholarship at Dublin Institute of Technology.
Alpine ski racing is an expensive sport where a full season can cost upwards of €30,000. In 2014, I had next to no funds or hope of continuing my career in ski racing, let alone having the Winter Olympics in my sights.
If it were not for the generous support I receive from individuals and organisations It would not be possible to continue the journey towards PyeongChang. For this I am immensely grateful.
