Ozzie skiing-superstar, Jacinta Carroll, is a winner on multiple accounts. For starters, she’s won the majority of pro jump events this season, has set multiple U-21 records, and is now the U-21 women’s world jump and overall champion. On top of her busy training schedule, she’s also a sophomore at Charles Darwin University and Victoria University in Melbourne, where she’s working on a degree in Exercise and Sports Science. “I chose exercise science because I love learning about how the body moves and responds to certain stimuli, and believe my studies will help my water-ski career,” says Jacinta.
The 21-year-old hailing from Geelong, Victoria, jumped 177-feet in the U-21 World finals to take the women’s jump title, which also delivered her the overall title, and a nice bonus gift. A sweet watch from Oris.
