BROTHERS Sam and Tom Annis continued their excellent good form with success at the English Slopestyle Ski Championships in Manchester last Saturday.

Both the Bewdley-based skiing siblings hit the heights, despite being some of the younger competitors on display in the Under-12s age section.

Sam, 10, came away with the bronze medal, while younger brother Tom (pictured), 8, finished fifth both in the Under-12 age category.

It has been a fine season for Sam, who is now the current bronze medalist in both the British and English Slopestyle Ski Championships.

The medals were presented by GB ski slopestyle Olympian Katie Summerhayes.

The boys are sponsored by skiing gear providers Surfanic and Butta.

Their pair have been in good form over the last few weeks.

Only last week, the Callowhill duo were two of the leading lights at the tournament.

Sam had an amazing weekend by winning the ten to 16-year-old category, as well as being crowned overall champion of the day after setting the fastest timed run against almost 100 other children.

Tom took second place in the seven to nine-year-old category.
