Arron Competes at European Water Skiing Championships

Year 12 student Arron Davies travelled out to Italy over the summer to compete in the European U17s Water Skiing Championships. He took part as a member of the British team, which won a Bronze medal overall.

Arron was one of thirty in his age category, as teams from across Europe entered the competition. He took part in three days of training with the British team before the four-day tournament itself. There were three parts to the competition: Slalom, which is Arron’s best event, Jump and Tricks. The twelve best competitors went forward to the next round.

“I really enjoyed going to the European Championships – it was a once in a lifetime experience,” Arron said.

In the British nationals in 2015, he came third in Slalom, third in Trick and second in Jump, and achieved a third overall. He now has the exciting opportunity to go to the 2016 U17 World Championships, which will be held in Chile in January 2017.
