Olympic silver medallist David Morris made a very strong comeback to full program training activities and was able to complete his full list of degree of difficulty with good improvements made throughout the water ramp season. Danielle Scott, Samantha Wells and Renee McElduff all performed a new manoeuvre on the ramp during 4 months in Utah.
Danielle did her first triple back somersaults of her career, where she continued to have a solid take off and control in the air. Samantha focused on preparing Full Double Full and also worked on her bodyline on Lay Tuck, Lay Full and Full Full. Renee focused on learning a new skill, Double Full Full, and Dave increased numbers on Lay Double Full Full.
World Champion Laura Peel missed the summer water ramp training block after ankle surgery. Laura is making good progress in her recovery, and is currently stepping up her strength and conditioning activities at the AIS in Canberra. A return to water ramping may be possible in early-November pending a medical return to sport clearance.
