Dual-Korea support helps make the difference for Team GB freestyle skier Peter Speight
19 Feb 2018

Halfpipe hopeful Peter Speight is in the form of his life as he looks to make a big impression at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics tomorrow. He is one of Britain’s leading freestyle skiers and has been earmarked by many as an outside bet to bag a medal. Coming into the competition on the back of a fourth-placed finish at the Halfpipe World Cup event in China – his best result yet – the 25-year-old is in buoyant mood.

Lloyd Wallace jumps at chance of aerials success in South Korea
16 Feb 2018

Aerials expert Lloyd Wallace spends nine months of the year living out of a suitcase, but that’s a sacrifice the resilient skier is more than willing to make in order to realise his Olympic dream. “Headphones, a stash of cashew nuts and a good book,” are - aside from skiing gear - the essential items required to hack the globe-trotting lifestyle of a freestyle skier, according to SportsAid alumnus and previous TASS beneficiary Lloyd.

Lizzy and Laura aiming to add to Team GB's illustrious skeleton history
15 Feb 2018

Reigning skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold is looking to make history in PyeongChang by becoming the first ever British athlete to defend their title at a Winter Olympics. Her campaign begins today, with the final two runs scheduled for tomorrow, as she aims to peak at the right time following her return to the sport little over a year ago. One of Lizzy’s biggest competitors will be Laura Deas - representing Team GB at her debut Olympics.

With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
