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.
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.
