Monday, 22 January 2018

Lydia Lassila has won gold and Laura Peel has claimed bronze at the Aerial Skiing World Cup in Lake Placid, New York.

Bouncing back from disappointing results the previous week, both Lassila and Peel reached the podium on two occasions throughout the Lake Placid competition.

On day one of competition, Lassila scored 99.75 whilst Peel rounded out the podium places with a score of 90.59.

Both Lassila and Peel backed up their performances by reaching the podium on day two, claiming silver and bronze respectively.

With PyeongChang 2018 less than twenty days away, the Aerials team will head to Ruka for an important training camp before setting their sights on the Winter Games.
