IWWF Cablewakepark Euro’s Sweden
The 15th European Cable Wakeboard & Wakeskate Championships 2013 were held in Fagersta, Sweden at Fagestra Cable Park from 26th August to the 31st, 18 riders from Team GB headed out on the Sunday to compete.
In my division there were 28 riders split into four Qualification groups of eight where the top three riders from each group went straight through to Semi’s with the rest going into LCQ’s for another chance to make it through.
The Semi Finals was made up of two groups of eight riders with the top four from each group going through to make up an eight rider Finals to battle it out for Podium.
My competition started on the Wednesday with Qualifications and LCQ’s, with the Finals being held on the Thursday. So Pleased to have Qualified 1st in my heat and so going straight through to Semi Finals on the Thursday where I qualified 3rd so going through into Finals landing my first run but falling on my harder run placing me third on the podium in Europe and bringing home the Bronze Medal :-)
Thanks to Clare Cordery ‘ GB Team Mum’ for looking after me and to CK ‘Team Coach’ and Ralph Young ‘Team Manager’ for all their help and advice!
