Athlete of the month – March 2015
Lloyd Wallace has claimed two prestigious sporting awards from his successful season. He has been named SportsAid Athlete of the month – all despite being largely self-funded, other than the support he gets from SportsAid thanks to SSE – and having to borrow a coach from the Swiss team.
University of Bath Sports Performance student Wallace won Great Britain’s first-ever Europa Cup Aerials gold medal during a magnificent March, which ended with a bronze medal at the World Junior Championships in Italy.
He’s since been recognised for those achievements as Bath University’s athlete of the month accolades for March 2015 went to winter-sport duo Lizzie Yarnold (skeleton) and Lloyd Wallace (aerials).
“It is awesome to win this award, an absolute honour,” said Lloyd, who has Dual Career status and is supported by the university’s Elite Athlete Fund.
This is a high-performance university, so just to be classed in the same league as the athletes who train here is pretty crazy.
Each of the winners receives a piece of REVO Eyewear from the Ellis & Killpartrick store in New Bond Street, Bath.
Tyron Dawkins, Brand Manager for REVO, said: “It was a pleasure to meet these outstandingly talented individuals who have enjoyed amazing results.
