THREE brothers are on top of the world after notching up gold medals at Bearsden Ski Club.

The Freestyle Championships were held at the club on Saturday.

It was a successful day with over 80 competitors from across the whole of the UK taking part in the Open Competition, which incorporated Bearsden’s Club Championship.

Bearsden snowsport stars Danny, Matt and Chris McCormick did well, with all three winning golds in their age category.

Danny won the overall title of Club Champion with Matt in close second place. Danny was also given an outstanding achievement award by the club to recognise his talent in winning the Scottish Championship for the last four years, as well as becoming British Indoor Slopestyle Champion and British University Indoor Champion 2012.

This event marks the end of the competition season, however, Matt is travelling to Cornwall this week with Team GB to begin a week of coaching with the Team GB Surf Team before flying out to Tignes in France for snow training.

Matt and Chris will then head out to Saas Fee in Switzerland for their summer coaching programme. Danny has university commitments but aims to continue snowboarding as much as possible over the next year.
