Student Lloyd Wallace makes a splash at World Water-Ramp Aerial Series Final

19 September 2016

University of Bath student Lloyd Wallace finished his summer season in style by soaring to a top-ten finish at the World Water-Ramp Aerial Series Final.

The competition – staged at the spectacular £30million training centre in Minsk, Belarus, featuring the world’s only indoor water-ramp – featured the world’s best aerial skiers.

Wallace, pictured with coach Mich Roth, needed to finish in the top 12 to reach the main final and produced a score of 109.38 for a triple twisting triple back to progress as seventh-best qualifier.

The Sports Performance student increased his score to 110.22 to successfully negotiate the first of three knock-out rounds in the final before landing his new quadruple twisting triple somersault in the second phase to finish seventh overall.

Wallace – who is hoping to qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea – is supported by a Santander Sports Scholarship and the Team Bath Dual Career programme.

Dual Career athletes are selected based on their exceptional achievement and potential in both their academic and sporting endeavours, and receive free access to the Sports Training Village gym, access to a qualified lifestyle adviser and up to 75% off professional qualifications among other benefits.

Applications for the 2016-17 Dual Career programme close on September 30. Click here for more information.
