Castle Comp Squad and British Team member Jim Pope had his best international result to date with a fantastic 9th place overall at the European Youth Championships in Imst, Austria last weekend. Jim qualified for the finals in 9th place (10 make it to the finals) against a very tough field in the Male Youth B category. He maintained his rank coming 9th in the finals as well. This was his first (of hopefully many!) international finals.
Jim is the co-captain of the Castle Comp Squad and regularly competes in local and national events. As a member of the Elite squad within the British Team he will be competing at many more international events this season.
