Harry's Game

20 February 2018

As you may be aware, Hazchem Network modestly supports young athlete Harry Spavin in his water-skiing endeavours, so following his report from 2017, and two reports from 2016 which are archived here and here - we present an update from 2018 -

As the 2017 season started I was still recovering from a dislocated elbow injury from the previous October.

I started back in the gym to regain strength in my arm, and I began skiing in February when I felt I was recovered sufficiently to get back onto the water.

My winter training began to a balmy 25 C in Louisiana, as opposed to the 3 C in wintery Great Britain. After a couple of months training, and a few visits down to Florida in March and April I was ready to take on the season.

After University, I travelled back to Florida to continue training for a busy summer ahead, returning home [Lincoln] in early June to continue my training.

I went to tournaments in June held in Oxford, Essex and Norwich, equalling my new slalom personal best which was a delight following my injuries last year. After my success in the June tournaments I went back to the training for the "Under 21 World Championships" in the Ukraine (July)

 After a great summer season in Europe; I improved my personal best scores in both Slalom and Tricks - also increasing my overall scores in the World, European and British Open Nationals

But soon it was time to return to University in Louisiana, for the "Fall Semester" [aka Autumn Term.]

I am now starting on the water in preparation for another busy year, on both sides of the Atlantic

I thank you all once again, for your continued sponsorship
