The Royal Engineers are well and truly back in the medals. In the three years since Brigadier Andy Barr's vision to create a Royal Engineers pathway to podium and kick start Royal Engineer's competitive winter sports programme. In 2016 the Royal Engineers ski team won the Army Corps Championships, they also won numerous individual titles and in 2017 had a clean sweep in the individual events in the Corps, Armies and Inter Service Championships. They also put a total of eight Royal Engineers on to the 2016 and 2017 Army ski team who won the overall trophy at the Inter Service Championships in 2016 and 2017.
Brigadier Andy Barr's vision to create a Royal Engineers pathway to podium is now a reality and ATC is very proud to be involved coaching the various teams and programmes.
