Canada Stands Strong at the World Water Ski Championships

OTTAWA, ON – Water Ski Canada is pleased to congratulate our Canadian athletes on a successful World Water Ski Champions, in Paris, France, September 3-10, 2017.

Despite the rain and wind, Canada stood strong against athletes from 31 countries and captured 2 gold, 1 silver, and 2 bronze medals; 4 top eight finishes; and a third place team finish.  This represents one of Canada’s strongest World Championships and demonstrates the depth of the Canadian program with medals and top 9 finishes earned by 9 athletes.

In Women’s Slalom finals action, Whitney McClintock (Canada) and Regina Jaquess (USA) tied for 1st with 2 @ 10.75. The runoff proved to be an epic battle as both skiers completed the 11-meter pass (tailwind) off the dock.  One of the highlights of the Championships, it took 2 rounds to determine the winner, with Regina taking the gold and Whitney the silver medal.  Canada’s 17-year-old Jaimee Bull won her first World Championships medal, scoring 4 on the 11.25 line to earn a bronze medal.  Two podiums in women’s slalom marks a first for Canada, with Neilly Ross making it into the finals and finishing 11th

In the Men’s Slalom final Jason McClintock (Canada) was 2nd of 12 finalists off the dock.  Posting the top score of 1.5 buoys @ 10.75, Jason waited anxiously as the remaining 10 skiers chased his score which held up and earned him a bronze medal behind Great Britain’s William Asher (2nd at 2.5 @ 10.75) and Frederick Winter (1st at 3 @ 10.75).

In the Women’s Trick final, vying for gold, Neilly Ross (Canada) added the front flip, nailing her run with a score of 10220 points.  Anna Gay (USA), last off the dock, skiing at a fast pace, fell on her toe pass, opening the door for Erika Lang (USA) at 9820 points to claim 2nd and Natallia Berdnikava (BLR) at 9520 points for 3rd. Paige Rini (Canada) in her first World Open Championships, nailed her run in prelims and topped it off in the finals to finish 7th with 7720 points.

In the Men’s Trick final, Dorien Llewellyn (Canada) tricked over ten thousand points but after video reviewed finished 9th at 9980 points. Legendary Jaret Llewellyn competed in Trick realizing his goal of competing alongside his son but failed to advance to the finals, still struggling to return back at full power after his severe crash at the 2015 World Championships.

In the Men’s Jump finals, coming off a record setting season, Ryan Dodd (Canada) – top seed in the finals – read the conditions perfectly. Attacking on his first jump, Ryan captured gold with one jump with a distance of 68.4 meters, followed by Freddy Krueger (USA) at 65.9 meters and Taylor Garcia (USA) at 62.9 meters.  Alex Paradis (Canada) finished 8th with a jump of 61.2 meters. Alex was only 1.5 meters off the podium and moved from 10th to 8th since last Worlds.  This is Ryan’s second consecutive World jump title.

In the Women’s Jump finals, Taryn Grant (Canada) finished 8th with a jump of 61.2 meters; and similar to Alex was only 1.7 m off the podium.  Canada’s Whitney McClintock finished in 13th place at 46.1 meters and Dominique Grondin Allard who fell in finals, finished 19th at 41.4 meters.

Overall was hard fought and young gun Dorien Llewellyn finished in a very respectable 5th place.   Jumping earlier in the week with adverse wind condition ultimately affected his overall score. Strong in all three events, he is on track to podium at the 2019 Worlds.  Favored to win overall, Whitney McClintock’s fall in Tricks moved her back to 10th position.  Challenging water conditions combined with sporadic wind gusts proved difficult for skiers to maximize performance.         

In the Team event, Canada finished 3rd behind France and USA.  Canada’s goal of winning the team title fell short with the limited combination of backup scores.  Belarus was close behind in 4th position. 

With athlete’s sights set on the podium, prelim conditions varied day to day which made making the cut challenging. Other Canadian athletes putting in respectable finishes but not advancing to finals include:     

  • Slalom: Breanne Dodd skied 3.5 @ 12, Taryn Grant skied 3 @ 12, Dorien Llewellyn skied 3 @ 11.25 and Stephen Neveu skied 5 @ 12 who opted up from 13m to 11m and managed to score 5 buoys at 11 m but was scored at 12 m because he did not complete the pass.   
  • Trick: Whitney McClintock tricked 4390 points.
  • Jump: Dorien Llewellyn went 56.8 meters.

Lead by National Team Head Coach Steve Bush, Assistant Coach Cole Grant and newcomer Darren Wharrie as the team’s medical, Team Canada continued to prove they are a strong team with a depth of competitors that continues to dominate on the international stage.

“I am truly proud of how our athletes performed” said National Team Head Coach Steve Bush.  “This was a challenging tournament with the busy water, rain and wind, and our athletes experience and training paid off.  I am very proud of their accomplishments both on and off the water”.

Congratulations to our 2017 World Water Ski Championship athletes!

Water Ski Canada and the Shalom Park host committee have been actively monitoring the COVID-19 crisis and its implications for the 2020 competitive water ski season, including the 2020 Canadian Water Ski National Championships, slated for Alberta in August.

The Chief Medical Officer of Alberta delivered an update on COVID-19 on April 23rdthat specifically addressed the mandatory restrictions on gatherings of over 15 people as it relates to summer events. This update provided clarification that summer events will not be allowed if they violate the gathering restrictions. A transcript of the announcement can be seen here- https://www.alberta.ca/release.cfm?xID=701519ADB9F71-9BB3-65BA-DEBCAF1D54416B96 
Due to this clarification from the Government of Alberta, it is with great regret that Water Ski Canada and the Shalom Park host committee have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Canadian Water Ski National Championships. Our foremost concern is to ensure the safety and well being of all participants. We know how important the Canadian Water Ski National Championships is to our community and we do not make this decision lightly. 
We are still hopeful that our clubs and schools will be able to run some programming this summer and we will continue to support those activities under local and federal legislation requirements. Our staff remains available to answer your questions and support your activities where legal mandates provide.
