Inverurie Youth Sports Foundation (IYSF) is a charitable foundation established to support young persons in sports. IYSF has supported Kirsty Muir for the last three years and is delighted to have extended their support for Kirsty for 2021 and help her achieve her freestyle skiing goals.
Kirsty Muir is a Scottish freestyle skier who competes internationally. At only 15 years of age, Kirsty achieved a silver medal at the 2020 Youth Olympics. In March 2021, at 16, Kirsty achieved a 2nd place podium finish at the USA World Cup Grand Prix in Aspen, even though she fractured her hand during her first run in qualifications for the event.
IYSF grant has supported Kirsty with her training and enabled her to attend various GB on Snow Camps in Europe and big air training at Banger Park, all subject to strict covid restrictions. Kirsty successfully finished 2nd Overall in the World Cup Slopestyle Season Standings.
“All the training I can attend, due to IYSF help, is helping to build my range of tricks for the future. It all helps me be a better skier and have a good platform to progress. Every camp is helping me progress, and I try my best to gain as much as I can from each one.” says Kirsty Muir.
IYSF grant has supported Kirsty with her training and enabled her to attend the GB Camp in Banger Park and Europe, subject to covid restrictions. Training during Covid has been challenging. Training and travelling for competitions has been hard and sometimes impossible, with lockdowns and quarantines in the 2022 Winter Olympic Games qualification period. Having additional grants from IYSF has been crucial in helping Kirsty train for upcoming international competitions.
