Everyone loves some fresh new faces. The World Water Ski Championships in San Bernardo, Chile, this past weekend brought in some new and excited skiers to the top of the skiing world. Among them are the big German boy Bojan Schipner; Freddie Winter, Great Britain’s new slalom star; 12-year-old Neilly Ross, the youngest skier to make finals; and the 6-foot-5-inch Canadian, Stephen Neveu.
An 18 year-old girl tricks a new world record of 10,180 points, a 12 year-old tricks 7,150 points, a 16 year-old slaloms into 39 off, and a new Girls 3 and national slalom record for Chile gets broken by a 17 year-old. All these girls are so young with a bright and promising water ski future ahead of them.
This weekend, there were water-ski records falling left and right at tournaments across the United States for skiers from Chile, Canada, New Zealand and the United States. Even a pending world trick record was broken.
More than 100 athletes from 30 countries will compete in the Under 21 World Water Ski Championships Sept. 12-15 at the Isles of Lake Hancock in Winter Garden, Florida.
