NICOLAS LeFORESTIER (FRA) BATTLES AGAINST WORLD CUP CLOCK
This will be a very tough challenge for the Waterski World Cup star and World Trick Record Holder (12,400 points), Nicolas LeForestier. He sustained a dreadful injury just before the Dubna Russia World Cup Stop when his arm went through the ski handle in training. As the boat picked up the slack, his upper arm muscles were almost separated form the shoulder in a freak accident. This would take normal humans half a lifetime to repair. To the astonishment of all our Dubna World Cup fans, Nicolas appeared on the starting dock just 10 days later – heavily bandaged into a Jump Sling under his World Cup Bib – see photo ! The huge applause was very moving and Nic even did his best to land a Flip but it did hurt ! Then the real recuperation began – and not without a lot of pain. At this point he is healing well – BUT CAN HE MAKE IT TO THE PUTRAJAYA WORLD CUP STOP on November 7/9 ? That is just a month away. Don’t bet against it but it will be some feat if he succeeds. Watch this space here on our World Cup site for more details as we get closer to that WATERSKI Stop.
