Meribel 2022 has provided a dramatic return to action for the military winter sports competitors.

Members of all three services have put everything on the line in the search of Inter Services titles.

But who were the key headline-makers of the week?

Corporal Rachel Hughes (RAF) – Alpine

It was a big week for the Air Force star who leaves Meribel with four wins under her belt.

She kicked off with a superb win in the Super Combined race before disappointment in the Downhill.

A loss to the Army's Jen Kehoe spurred her on, though, as she dominated the rest of the week.

The Ski Slalom, Super G and the Giant Slalom title wins means Cpl Hughes is undoubtedly the queen of military alpine skiing.

Watch: Corporal Rachel Hughes wins her third title in the Alpine Super G.

Flight Lieutenant Paddy Morris (RAF) – Snowboard

It was another impressive Air Force performance as Flt Lt Morris walked away with two wins from three events.

He took both the Snowboard Cross and the Slopestyle trophies with impressive performances.

His only defeat came at the hands of Army pair Sven Benevides and David Grant in the Parallel Giant Slalom.

Watch: The Snowboard Cross event provided a dramatic start to the week's action.

Captain Stefan Hurst (Army) – Telemark

A 100% record for the Army man.

He competed in the Telemark Classic, Telemark Sprint and the Giant Slalom and won all three events.

His domination was a recurring theme during the week.

Able Seaman Graeme Price (Royal Navy) – Alpine

What a debut championships for the new Navy sailor!

AB Price won the Downhill, Ski Slalom and Giant Slalom races to walk away with three trophies.

He spent time with the GB team before joining the military and it showed, with an incredible group of performances.
