Ben-CavetFormer Crowborough resident, Ben Cavet, 20, comes 8th in the Men’s Moguls.

Ben started skiing at the Bowles Outdoor Centre at Eridge where his Dad was a ski instructor.

Two years ago Ben became a French citizen in order to pursue his dreams, as he was unable to gain funding from UK Sport for his chosen sport Mogul Skiing.

After competing he told the BBC:

I’m still relatively young for the sport and this was my first Winter Olympics, so I was just aiming for a bit of experience. And, hopefully, I’ll be going for a medal in 2018. It’s awesome, it’s such a different race, the whole build-up to it, so much attention from the media and then being with all the other sports is a really cool team.
