My name is Ben, I come from Denmark. I am 16 years old and have been at St George's for 10 years. I used to ski with the Danish national youth team, but now I have moved into golf, I am currently a member of both Montreux Golf Club, Verbier Golf Club and Hornbæk Golf Club. I have a handicap of 20,4 and am aiming to reduce it to below 10 by the end of this academic year. I train 5 times a week, 3 times on the course, and 2 times in the fitness centre. I also compete regularly in junior competitions and I have won both the Verbier junior open and the Championnat de Valais junior.
I joined the Sport Études group because of my very busy schedule involving both school and my elite sport. Sport Études has helped me to manage my time efficiently as well as collaborating with my teachers and other members of staff to ensure that I can compete and train whilst staying on top of my school work. I also enjoy the fitness sessions, where we sometimes learn about the proper nutrition for our sports and have good recoveries sessions in the cryotherapy chamber.
