The 2013 Junior World Water Ski Championships held last weekend at Max Kirwan Park Mulwala have been acclaimed as the best ever held.
Organiser Wayne Briant said the feedback from teams had been overwhelming not only for how smoothly the program went, the course itself and the perfect weather but for the support and knowledge of the Yarrawonga Mulwala community.
The world championships tournament director Wayne Briant said the event had received praise from all the countries involved with many saying it had been the best championships they had attended.
“It was just superb, The skiers couldn’t believe how people here in Yarrawonga Mulwala understand skiing so well, they’ve never experienced that before.
“The weather has been perfect, the course was spot on and lots of locals came out to watch. The mayors of both councils came out (Corowa and Moira) and the support from the ski club was fantastic, I really want to thank them for that.” He said the Australian team performed extremely well with Josh taking the boys title and Stephanie Griffiths collecting silver in the jumps.
“They all skied well, we finished just behind the Americans which was a great effort.”
He highlighted the performance of one of the younger members of the Australian team as a pointer to the future.
“Archie Davis achieved PBS in everything he did and he will be one to watch,” Wayne said.
Many of the countries will be staying in Australia for the Moomba Masters which will commence on March 6.
