FRANCE, ITALY, GREAT BRITAIN, GREECE, AND USA TAKE GOLD MEDALS AT WATERSKI WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN AUSTRIA

With 182 athletes from 41 Countries participating, the performance standards reached in Austria impressed even the most experienced of the several thousand fans present. In Slalom, the World Championships Men’s record was equaled. In Ladies and Men Tricks and Jump it was exceeded. Twelve Finalists in each discipline enjoyed perfect weather conditions at this northern Austria location. The blue and white CorrectCraft Ski Nautique boat was gleaming in the sunshine as the athletes prepared to commence the challenge for the title of World Champion.

The Slalom Final came first. The defending champion Regina Jaquess (USA) did not make it out of the Preliminary Round. Three ladies achieved scores on the 10.75m line. The more experienced Karen Truelove (USA), ranked second in the World, scored 1.5 buoys and a Silver Medal. However, two of the younger rising stars earned well deserved podium places. Karina Nowlan (AUS) took third place with 1.5 buoys. The new World Slalom Champion, Nicole Arthur (GBR), had a magnificent score of 2 buoys and Scotland has gained a new sports star !
