The RAF have dominated in the Snowboard Slopestyle event at Meribel 2022.

Despite tough challenges from their rivals in the British Army and Royal Navy, both the men's and women's races were won by Air Force competitors.

That meant the women's team title also went to the RAF while the men's team title was won by the Army.

In the men's race, Flight Lieutenant Paddy Morris took top spot, adding to his win in the Snowboard Cross event on Monday.

His closest challengers were Marine Chris Harrington from the Navy in second and Colour Sergeant Sven Benevides from the Army in third.

The women's event went in the same order in terms of services as the RAF's Wing Commander Claire Collis defeated the Navy's Aaby Aldridge and the Army's Private Isabel Howell.
