The stage is set and fully prepared in Dnipro Ukraine for the arrival of 88 athletes from 23 countries who will compete in Slalom, Tricks and Jump. The World U21 Waterski Championships of the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) is where the Open stars of the future will prove themselves on July 13/16. This year, the current rising standards will certainly create some sensations based on recent outstanding performances.
The Sentosa Waterski Club river site is a well proven one having hosted National Waterski Championships, Europe Africa Youth Championships and many Cash Prize events. The IWWF World U21 Waterski Championships will be exclusively towed by the world-record breaking Ski Nautique 200 Closed Bow boat.
The twenty three countries represented in Dnipro will include Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belarus, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, France, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, USA – and of course the home country Ukraine.
With so many outstanding young male and female IWWF competitors at this time, highlighting possible gold medallists in all three events is quite a challenge. In Slalom, watch out for Sweden’s Jacob Bogne, Canada’s Cole McCormick and Dorien Llewellyn, and Robert Pigozzi of the Dominican Republic. Bogne holds Sweden’s National Slalom Record, McCormick was the 2016 PanAm Slalom Champion. Pigozzi was Junior World Champion and World Record holder. All are capable of scoring on the very short 10.25m line.
