Inter Service Ice Championships 2017
This year the 2017 Inter Service Ice Championships took place in Lillehammer, Norway and the Army teams achieved their best Ice results since 2006, winning 3 of the 5 team titles as follows:
- Army Male Bobsleigh Champions. This was a great result as the team was without LSgt Deen Gren Gds, who was on GB World Cup duty, which has showed strength in depth.
- Army Female Skeleton Champions. A great result with Capt Larcombe RAMC and SSgt Bloomer RAPTC as winner and runner up in the individual. LCpl Jackson RLC was also runner-up in the Male event.
- Army Combined Team Luge Champions. Additionally Sgt Scott RAMC and Gdsm Thompson won the individual Female and Male titles.
The overall results from all competitions show that the Army took 7 of 12 Team titles, one down from the high of 2016.
Bobsleigh is not for the faint hearted as Sgt Gary Kendall shows in his fantastic video from the Army Ice Sports Championships.
