SKIING sensation LCDR Justin
Mangan, of HMAS Cerebrus, con-
tinued his domination on the slopes
at the Australian Defence Alpine
Snowsports Association Interservice
Championships as he steered the
Navy men's skiing team to overall
victory and was crowned men's indi-
vidual combined ADF ski champion.
"That's 10 from 10 attempts for
me now," LCDR Mangan said.
"I'm not sure how many Navy
championships I have won as I con-
centrate more on the ADF competi-
tion and use the Navy championships
as training for the competition."
Held at Perisher from August
5-10, Navy came within two points
of the title with Army dominating the
women's events to edge ahead at the
end of the competition.
Navy Snowsports President Capt
Tony O'Malley, Chief of Staff HQ
Northern Command, said he was
pleased with Navy's overall result.
"The result is commensurate
with the last couple of years," CAPT
"In men's Alpine events we are
strong, but we are less strong in wom-
en's events across the board.
"We are pushing to get more
women involved and with more rac-
ing experience we hope to be able to
reverse the result."
Navy fielded four full teams for
men's and women's Alpine skiing
and snowboarding with eight male
skiers, six female skiers, eight male
snowboarders and six female snow-
boarders, many competing for the first
"We took some female skiers
and snowboarders who had never
raced before attending the Navy
championships," Vice President Navy
Snowsports LCDR Paul Kirk said.
"These women were exceptional in
stepping up to challenge themselves.
"They overcame nerves and fear
to complete the international standard
courses under some very challenging
There were some fantastic indi-
vidual performances particularly by
AB Julien Jais, of HMAS Waterhen,
who finished second overall to LCDR
AB Jais said it was only his sec-
ond interservice championship and he
was pleased with his result and would
continue on until he got to top spot.
"I competed for the first time last
year in the interservice competition
and have been skiing for about 10
years," AB Jais said.
"I attended the ADASA Europe
snowsports tour over the Christmas
break last year where I received race
training and competed against the
"I intend to keep coming back
until I win at the interservice level."
LCDR Mangan said the standard
of the skiing was improving each year
and he didn't think it would be long
before Navy was back on top.
"On paper we have the strongest
men's ski team and the female team is
"I think if the best skiers and
boarders are able to attend the cham-
pionships then we could definitely
win the overall championship back
"In the meantime, the guys are
improving all the time and I'm not
getting any younger so they keep me
on my toes."
