British skiers took all three podium spots at the Swiss Pro Slalom held in the USA on Sunday 5th May.

It is the first time GB athletes have swept the board on the Waterski Pro Tour and they did so in the first slalom competition of the 2024 Tour, held at the Swiss Waterski Resort in Clermont, Florida.

The winner was Will Asher, whose 4 buoys at 10.25 metres in the first of two preliminary rounds, was the highest score of the day. As the last skier off the dock in the 8-man final, he did just enough to win, scoring 3.5@10.25m.

Earlier in the final, Will’s cousin, Rob Hazelwood, and Joel Poland both scored 3@10.25m but Rob took second ahead of Joel by virtue of his superior back up score.

The GB slalom specialist has won the Men’s Slalom title at Moomba for the first time. He topped the podium at the prestigious competition held on the Yarra River in Melbourne, Australia. Jack Critchley was second in Men’s Jump.

It’s the best possible start to the new season for Freddie, for whom this was the first competition since he became Men’s Slalom World Champion for the second time in Florida, USA, in October 2023.

It marks the start of a busy year on the water in which he’s hoping to build on the form that took him to his most successful ever season last year.

“I’m so very happy to have managed to take a very tough win here at one of the few events where the water is as difficult to beat as your opponents,” Freddie said.

“It feels wonderful to start a long season on the Waterski Pro Tour this way.”
