AGE shall not weary those skiers who just cannot give up the wonderful downhill sport that has captivated them.

Marg Franke-Williams would admit she has to be called a senior at this stage, but is still wowing them on the slopes.

Returning from another Australian Masters Ski Association championships, Marg held her cluster of medals from the events, showing – yet again – that she can mix it with the young ‘uns and succeed admirably.

Taking out gold medals in Super-G, Giant Slalom and Slalom, Marg was especially delighted to learn she came first in the Giant Slalom where the age range was 30-69 years.

And to cap it off, she gained a silver in the Super-G on handicap in the 65-69 years age range.

If the Australian Masters Ski Association decides to compete in Quebec in February, Marg will go along too.
