Nick Crump Talks With Shaftesbury Olympic Skier Lloyd Wallace

Lloyd Wallace competed in freestyle skiing at the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, in the ‘aerials’ discipline. His speciality is the full-full-full – a twisting triple somersault, 50ft in the air!

Alfred’s Nick Crump chats with Lloyd. The local sportsman is currently in Russia competing in the World Cup tour.

Lloyd is hopeful that he will qualify for next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing. He is self-funded, but he receives a lot of encouragement and expert advice from his parents. Robin and Jilly, who live in Semley, are former Olympic skiers themselves.
