Despite Covid-19 postponing many of 2020’s events, the trio could still take part in national competitions later this year.

The postponed events, which include the European Youth and Under-21s Championships and World Junior and Under-21s Championships, are now set to take place in 2021, with the 2020 squad still taking part.

The teenage Turps compete in the three high-adrenalin disciplines of water skiing – slalom, jumping and tricks.

Seb had his first taste of action for the summer earlier this month. He was part of a Great Britain Water Skiing squad coaching camp in Lincolnshire where Seb smashed his slalom personal best and also broke the U12 slalom record.
