WHAT A YEAR IT HAS BEEN FOR THE WORLD CUP !
If we were to select three of the most exciting venues where events are organised on a truly grand scale, we could not have done any better than picking Dubna Russia, Liuzhou City China and Putrajaya Malaysia !
Huge numbers of spectators, outstanding TV coverage, glorious sunshine – and surrounding ceremonies and facilities which were quite extraordinary this season. The memories, photos and TV footage will last for years to come. Congratulations to our outstanding hosts, sponsors and fans – and congratulations also to our Skiers and Riders who took every challenge on the chin and delivered thrilling performances on the water every time.
We remember the huge, enthusiastic and knowledgeable Russian crowds filling the grandstand once again on the Volga River in Dubna, Jaret Llewellyn’s show stopping spectacular crash off the Jump Ramp and the wonderful closing ceremony and performing artists on the floating stage at sunset. We remember the extraordinary water and fireworks displays in Liuzhou City, the 26 TV Stations delivering our World Cup to over 800 million viewers across China and the truly beautiful setting on the picturesque River Liu. We remember the electric atmosphere in Putrajaya with the packed grandstand, huge Jumbo Screen, tented village, full Webcast service and absolutely beautiful setting. To experience so much in one season was a real honour for all of us involved.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL
