With success in international competition, Lloyd Wallace, Harry Gillam and Tim Lever achieved their FIS competition A-licences during 2013 and experienced World Cup for the first time. Lloyd and Harry are part of the 2015 British Team and will compete regularly at World Cup events. Now at the pinnacle of the sport, they hope to be selected to represent TeamGB at the 2015 World Ski Championships and the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
Elodie Wallace experienced her first snow competitions during 2013 and achieved considerable success as a rookie with two Top-10 places in Europa Cup. Despite earning GBR an extra quota spot for Women’s World Cup aerials, it has been decided that her development as an athlete will be better served by remaining in B-Level competitions such as Europa Cup and Nor-Am events until she is ready to be truly competitive on the world stage. Elodie expects to compete again this year at the Junior World Championships in Valmalenco (ITA), where she hopes to improve on the 8th place she achieved in 2013.
Following closely in their footsteps are a new crop of athletes, looking to emulate the success of their peers.
Emily Russell was back in Park City during summer 2013 and after some initial improvement suffered a knee injury which has kept her out of action in the run up to 2015.
Also new to the water ramp was Emliy Clothier, a school friend of Elodie and talented gymnast who was out in Switzerland getting her first taste of aerials, trying out 360’s and front flips.
