ANOTHER BIG CHALLENGE FOR OUR WORLD CUP ATHLETES
Right now here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the flights are delivering some very talented athletes to the Calgary area. Yes, it is time once again to take on the challenge of our biennial World Waterski Championships. While we have just completed 26 World Cup Stops, our World Championships only come around every two years. Having just completed our Dubna Russia World Cup Stop, there is now time for our World Cup Stars to take on the Calgary Worlds before we get back on the road again with our next World Cup Stop in Liuzhou China.Who will take the titles of World Champion in Calgary ? Our World Cup Stars are certainly very high on the “probables” list. Keep a special eye out for the battle between Jumpers June Fladborg DEN and Ageliki Andriopoulou GRE – with Marie Vympranietsova close on thier heels to take advantage of any slip-up. Jaret Llewellyn CAN, Freddy Krueger USA and Ryan Dodd CAN will also deliver a fascinating battle on the Men’s Jump Ramp. Sparks will fly !
Tricks will also bring our World Cup Stars to the podium. Clementine Lucine FRA and Mandy Nightingale USA will certainly be on that medals hunt. For the Men, Nicolas LeForestier FRA is due a major performance but Aliazsei Zharnasek BLR and Herman Beliakou BLR will be waiting for that door to open and this will make it a fascinating event.In Slalom, nobody knows how our World Cup Stars will fare in both the Men and Women’s events. Regina Jaquess USA, Nicole Arthur GBR and Karina Nowlan AUS will provide a great battle for the title. In the Men’s event, watch out for Will Asher GBR, Thomas Degasperi GBR and some surprises on the horizon.
Overall will be a time for all of Canada to keep their fingers crossed for Jaret Llewellyn. He has been featured here for the past days on Newspapers, Radio and TV and expectations are high. Jimmy Siemers USA, Javier Julio ARG and Ryan Dodd CAN will mount a huge challenge for him – and this will make it a “must see” event. In the Ladies event, Regina Jaquess USA has just had her new World Overall Record approved but Clementine Lucine FRA is such a huge challenge that this will be yet another unmissable event.
So, as we can see, World Cup Stars will be at the very top of the Worlds Championships challenge. We will bring you regular updates here in the coming week – SO PLEASE STAY TUNED !
