Johanna Konta is not the only British sportswoman to zoom up the rankings this week by reaching the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
Here’s 14-year-old Lucy Yates-Smith, who’s just won BOTH Giant Slaloms at the French Under 16 Championships in Auron this week.
Mother Annabel, who was once a YSE chalet girl, ensures the operation runs smoothly while Uncle Dick founded iconic Dick’s Tea Bar back in 1979.
The future Lindsey Vonn? Firstly, like Australian-born Konta who has Hungarian parents but her home is in Eastbourne, Lucy will no doubt have to decide which flag to embrace.
Either way, we imagine national officials and sponsors – if not there already – will soon be making tracks to the door of her Val d’Isere home.
Congratulations Lucy from all us here at Welove2ski.
