The British Nordic Ski Team are aiming to challenge the top cross country ski nations at the upcoming 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. At our first appearance at the Games since 1994, a young British Team far outperformed their expectations at Vancouver and have not looked back since. We've gone from strength to strength including achieving podium positions and winning the Norwegian National Championships. The Team need to training extensively between now and February - please help us fund our training and allow us to make the nation proud.

Since our Olympic performance at Vancouver in 2010, the Great Britain standing on the World cross country ski stage has gone from strength to strength.

We start our athletes on development programes from the age of 12 and where we are now has been a long term programme that is now bearing fruit.

In 2013, our young athletes competed at the World Cup and achieved our best ever results including Andrew Musgrave successfully winning the Norwegian National Championships.

The Team is predocminately funded by family, friends and a very small band of loyal sponsors.

In order to give us the best possible chance of success at Sochi we have scheduled a relentless programme of training and racing in the run up to the Games.

Our aim is to be at our peak and for the nation to be proud of our achievements at Sochi and who knows, perhaps a medal.

We need support to help fund our training programme and we're looking for backers to have faith in the Team and help us to make it happen.

We have already 4 qualified places at the Sochi games and we're hoping to gain a further place before February.

Just by qualifying for Sochi, the Team's performance is already better than it was in Vancouver and we stand to achieve our best performing Great Britain cross country team ever.

Our ultimate goal is to raise £10,000 but by raising £5,000, this will go a long way to supporting us to achieve our dream and hopefully allow us to make the nation proud at Sochi in February.
