Zoe Still on for Olympics

Snowsport GB - the governing body for British skiing and snowboarding - has gone into administration just a week before the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

The British Olympic Association has stepped in to guarantee the participation of the 14 skiers and snowboarders under it's administration, including Zoe Gillings from the Isle of Man.

Zoe's funding for this season was cut leading to far less time on the slopes preparing for competitions.

However, after weeks of speculation, Zoe is said to be relieved she can now concentrate on her bid for a medal in Vancouver.

She's quoted as saying "It's been a difficult time for a lot of snowsport athletes, and I'm very hopeful that this will be a very positive stop forward."

After the Winter Olympics, the British Snowboard Association is looking to take over control of snowboarding in the U.K..
