Bronze for Laura Peel in Moscow World Cup

ACT’s Laura Peel took bronze and her first medal this season at the Aerial Skiing World Cup Final in Moscow, Russia while Lydia Lassila has won her third gold medal.

Danielle Scott, the world standing leader coming into the event, also made the final six and was unlucky not to have made the landing, leaving her in fifth place. Scott had to settle for an overall second – matching her result from last season.

“Tonight definitely felt good,” Peel said of her bronze medal. “I had been disappointed the last few weeks and wanted to put it all out there.”


The Aerials event site in downtown Moscow was made of scaffold.

The defending 2015 World Champion has had a long road back after a near career-ending injury that kept her out of the 2015/16 season but all that is behind her now.

“Tonight is a confidence booster. The format at World Championships is slightly different with three different jumps after qualifying instead of two. I’ve now successfully competed both versions of my triple twisting double and I will need both next week.”
