Mulwala Water Ski Club member Josh Briant claimed the World Junior Water Ski Boys Overall title at the world championships held at Max Kirwan Park which ended on Sunday.
Josh won the tricks event, came 5th in the jumps and 11th in the slalom to finish ahead on points from Santiago Robledo of Columbia.
Australia finished 2nd in the overall team classification just behind the USA.
Josh was the number one ranked male skier coming into the competition and said he was glad to perform so well at his home course and with the weight of expectation so high.
“I was more stressed in the first few rounds when you go in ranked near the top and everyone expects you to win,” he said. “I was really happy with my tricks and slalom but the jumps weren’t so good. I crashed and just made it into the finals.
“In the finals the tricks and jumps went really well but then the slalom was not so good.
“But I was really happy with the way everything turned out. It was one of the best championships I’ve been to, it was one of the best organised tournaments and everyone enjoyed themselves.
“I really want to thank the whole crew behind the event, the Mulwala Water Ski Club, the Moira and Corowa shire councils, they were all very supportive.”
Josh headed off to Geelong with Australian skier Stephanie Griffiths and American Taylor Garcia for a brief surfing holiday before returning to prepare for Moomba.
