I am Adina-Rae Nyahwa and I’m 22 years old. I have always been competitive and with after achieving World Champion status 3 times in tap dance I decided I wanted a new challenge.
I already enjoyed Snowboarding so decided to give the breath-taking winter sport of Snowboard Cross a go. I am so proud and excited as I have recently been selected to represent the British Snowboard Team.
Snowboard Cross is one of the fastest growing winter sports, providing spectators with a mix of high-speed racing, dynamic jumps and strategic thinking.
Team GB Snowboard Cross (SBX) will be competing at International Ski Federation (FIS) European, and World Cup competitions across Europe. FIS Snowboard Cross events are televised on Eurosport, so you can imagine I just can’t wait to be part of it!
For 6 months of the year, the GB Snowboard cross squad lives and trains together in the Austrian Alps. The training program is completely athlete funded and as you can imagine it isn’t cheap. This is where I need support as money I raise through my appeal will enable me to purchase an SBX race board and the specialist equipment I need, to train and compete for my country.
It is such an amazing opportunity and who know where it may take me!

I am pleased to be working with Wiltshire and Swindon Sport and Podium Partners who have given me the opportunity to raise money using their unique Sports Funding platform, so I can achieve my ambition to represent my country.
Karel CEO of Podium Partners commented “We offer a platform for County Sports Partnerships, Sports clubs, Athletes and Schools to amplify their exposure and reach, to be able to attract attention to their Sports Fundraising appeals. This is an excellent opportunity for Adina and we would love to help her raise enough money train with the British Team. What an incredible opportunity for her and a chance of a lifetime.”
