    Olympic Bronze medal winning freeskier Nico Porteous has started his preparations for next year's Beijing Winter Olympics


    And the 19 year old current Freeski halfpipe world champion feels fortunate the recent lockdown hasn't impacted on his programme.



    Porteous will spend the next six weeks training at Cardrona before a break in November before he heads to the US in early December.
