POTTERS Bar brothers Daniel and Robert Poth grabbed two podium finishes at the 2010 British Indoor Ski Racing Championships at the Castleford Xscape Snow Centre.

This season both boys are competing head to head in the same U15 age category with younger sibling Robert age 13 in his first season of the older age group.

The British Championships format was two runs on different courses, both of which have to be completed for the overall result.

In the U15 age category 41 competitors took part in the Championship race including two French racers from the Chamonix ski race club.

Buff sponsored athlete Robert, on tremendous form against the older racers including the sibling rivalry, kept his nerve and skied to an impressive overall 25.00 seconds winning the gold with older brother Daniel just slotting in behind with 25.28 secs securing the silver.

Next up for the boys will be the European Indoor Championships in September.

Daniel and Robert are delighted to have recently been selected to the Hertfordshire Talented Athlete Programme for 2010/11.

This programme will offer invaluable support to the boys having access to the facilities and expertise the partnership has to offer.

The ski brothers are still hoping to secure sponsorship for their forthcoming winter alpine ski training and racing season.
