Monday, 25 February 2019
The FIS Freestyle Aerials World Cup was held in the Belarus capital of Minsk which saw the Victorian Institute of Sport’s duo, Laura Peel and Abbey Wilcox, finish with a bronze medal for Team Australia in Sunday’s Syncro event.
On the previous day, Peel and Wilcox also competed in the solo finals, however a hiccup on the landings in the finals saw Peel finish in 11th place; Wilcox finished in 13th position.
“I am a bit disappointed about the result. I jumped well in qualifications, but unfortunately had a bit of trouble landing in finals,” said Peel.
With two World Cup events remaining this weekend in China, Peel is currently in fourth place on the Ladies Aerial World Cup standings.
