Some of the world's best aerialists showed their biggest tricks on a water ramp at this year's Freestyle Masters Jumpin’ in Mettmenstetten, Switzerland‘s premier summer aerial training centre on 17th August 2014.

The men’s event was won by Olympic Champion Anton Kushnir (BLR) while Swiss hero Tanja Schaerer took the ladies‘ victory. Schaerer and Kushnir repeated their winning feat from 2012 when both athletes also landed on top of the podium.

This year, however, it will be Schaerer‘s last win for a while as she will have to take a break for shoulder surgery in September, forcing her to miss the 2014/15 World Cup season. “It is a strange feeling. I am saying good-bye with a smile and a heavy heart“, Schaerer commented. 

With a full house and bluebird skies, it was again a good atmosphere for the event which is a top highlight for the town of Mettmenstetten, located about 30 minutes away from Zurich.

Final results men: 

Anton Kushnir (BLR)
Oleksandr Abramenko (UKR)
Denis Osipau (BLR)

Final results ladies:

Tanja Schaerer (SUI)
Aliaksandra Ramanouskaya (BLR)
Nadiya Mokhnatska (UKR)
