Snowboard star Ellie Soutter dies on 18th birthday

THE heartbreaking circumstances surrounding a snowboard phenom’s death have been revealed after she was found dead in French woodland.

THE family of Team GB snowboarder and Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics hopeful Ellie Soutter today revealed the teen was found dead in French woodland on her 18th birthday.

Ellie is feared to have taken her own life on Wednesday, with her uncle today paying tribute to his “chirpy” niece, The Sun reports.

Speaking to the MailOnline, uncle Jeremy Soutter said the young athlete had faced pressure from her competition but had never given any indication she would take her own life.

He said: “She wanted to be good at everything. She expected a lot of herself.

“There’s certainly a lot of pressure from competing. The travelling is immense too. She had a very busy training schedule and generally all of that takes its toll.”

Family has today flocked to the French Alps, where Ellie lived with her father Tony Soutter, to gather for a memorial for the teen — initially planned to be a birthday celebration for the young woman.

At least a dozen people had travelled to Les Gets for tonight’s party.

It is unclear if her mother Lorraine Denman, a body builder who lives in Hove, East Sussex, is among those in France.

Ellie’s dad Tony — who was to celebrate his own birthday on Monday — last night confirmed his daughter’s tragic death, saying: “This cruel world took my Soul mate and ‘Bessie’ from me yesterday on her 18th birthday.
