Olympic snowboarder Zoe Gillings has put her entrepreneurial hat on after losing her funding from UK Sport.

The British number one snowboard cross athlete didn't meet funding guidelines after finishing 9th at this year's Winter Olympic Games in Russia.

Zoe, who is from Ronague, says whilst she understands the decision she was disappointed to miss out. 

Now in a bid to fund her Olympic programme she's launched a new online business called Pound Shave Club and has plans to launch two more before the year is out.

She says she's hopeful she'll gain enough support to be able to continue to compete on the World Cup circuit:
