Annika's first international racing experience with the British Nordic Ski Team came at the Swiss National Championships in Leysin, Switzerland and at the 2013 U23 World Ski Championships in Val di Fiemme, Italy. She was excited to make the next step in international racing with the British Nordic Ski Team last winter, and skiied in her first World cup races!

She is now training with Team Coop Talent based in Lillehammer, Norway, and Annika's main race target for the season is the World Championships in Lahti. Her long term goal is to finish in the top 2/3 of the field at the 2018 and 2022 Winter Olympics.

Annika sends a huge thank you to her parents Peter and Betsy, her brother Alex, and her sister-in-law Sydney for their constant support and encouragement, to her past and present teammates for the camaraderie and motivation, and to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for the gift of life itself!
