    be the best at / be the worst at?

    Hi, may I say "Tina is the best at skiing in our group"?
    I think theoretically it is right. Somehow, it sounds weird.
    Thanks.

    Re: be the best at / be the worst at?

    It's fine although you're probably more likely to hear "Tina is the best skier in our group".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
