CHRIS PARRISH HAD AN EXTRAORDINARY WEEKEND !
The Ski Ranch Tournament in Covington, Louisiana, USA, carved its name into Waterski history books yesterday – and so did Chris “The Tower” Parrish.
Chris Parrish in action
In the qualifying round, World Cup Star Chris Parrish did the impossible by equalling his existing World Slalom Record, not once, but twice in one day ! This has never been achieved before. Then in the Finals, he entered totally new territory by pushing the current World Record all the way to 2 buoys on the incredibly short 9.75m line. Remember that it is 11.5m from each buoy to the ski pole in the boat. In other words, somehow he was able to get around two buoys with a reach of 1.5m to make up for the line reduction. As they say in the USA, AWESOME...
