Adrenaline junkie parties on despite skiing injury

By Beth Surridge

A DMU Snowsports Society member had to have six stitches after falling over at its training session but didn’t let that stop him partying hours later at its social night.

Bevan Wedgwood, 19, was at Stoke Ski Centre for DMU’s recent freestyle ski training  when the adrenaline junky decided to go over the biggest jump and unfortunately didn’t make it.

Bevan Wedgwood, the adrenaline junkie.

He said: “I realised as I was going down the run, that one of my skis just wasn’t on my foot.

“I proceeded to go up the jump but didn’t make it over, I noticed a bit of blood on my leg so checked it out and noticed there was a hole in my knee.”

Bevan returned from training and then went to Leicester Royal Infirmary, where he received six stitches.

He said: “I double checked with the doctor to make sure I could still drink alcohol, he said it was fine so I made my way back and got ready for the social night.”

Although he was late, the young party-boy made it to the society’s social night and stumbled back to his flat at 3am.

He said: “My knee was throbbing a little bit, but I got pretty drunk, people were offering me piggy-backs and I also got a few free drinks, so really it was a good night.”

The Snowspnorts Society’s next training session was only a week after he received stitches but Bevan was planning still to try out snowboarding for the first time.

He added that he would “most definitely” be going out on the society’s next social night after he has a go at snowboarding.
