Forces Sport podcast: Competing and coaching at Meribel

Roger Cruikshank and Nathan Jones competed at Meribel in 2006 and now they're back this year as coaches.

Roger Cruikshank and Nathan Jones both competed for the Royal Air Force alpine team when the Inter Services Snow Sports championships first came to Meribel in 2006.

Sixteen years later, they are part of the coaching set-up for the RAF team.

They enjoyed success with the light blue ladies winning the alpine competition and the men coming second.

Both have had very varied lives, on and off their skis, including Roger’s appearance for Team GB at the Winter Olympics in Turin in 2006. 

We find out more about both men when they join the Forces Sport podcast as this week's special guests.
