Local barefoot water skier William Leigh has returned from the sport’s world championships in Canada sporting a host of medals.
The Year 13 St Peter’s student came home with a silver medal in junior boys’ tricks, a bronze in junior boys’ jump and bronze for third overall junior boy.
Also in the medals was a St Peter’s boarding student, April Foster, who competed in all three events in the junior girls’ division, making the finals in all three. She came home with a bronze medal for third overall junior girl and beat her personal best while she was over there.
William and April were both awarded a bronze medal as part of the NZ Junior Team, which placed third overall at the International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation’s 2018 World Barefoot Water Ski World Championships at Napanee in Ontario last month.
