Luzhou - best jumping in the world... *Update*

OH WOW A NEW WORLD RECORD - 286 FEET!!!!!

oh whats that you say?

Freddy won with a jump of how far?

186 huh...And Natalia won womens jump with a 119? Huge distances all around it sounds like.

So apparently the conditions did not improve all that much from practice. IWSF apparently notice the issue as well.
As the Liu River site is downtown, which gave us access to 500,000
spectators at the Opening Ceremony, backwash from the river sides did pose a
test and all involved will see how to address this in the future.
Well people will complain and say this was a terrible location and IWSF is ruining waterskiing. But that quote says something else as well, 500,000 spectators, HOLY SHIT 500,000 people, that freaking rules! I have been to 3 pro events in the past couple years and the most I have seen at any of them was about 3,000 people at the LA Night Jam and that could be an over estimate.

China seems to be all about the skiing, look at the crowds they are pulling in. This stuff is solid. And if they can pull crowds like this maybe the Chinese people will use some of their $582 billion stimulus to buy some water ski stuff, I bet you the waterski industy would not complain one bit. Anything that helps the sport grow around the world, even if it is jumps that are 50 feet short of what we have come to expect, it wont hurt us at all. The more time on the water in front of crowds our pros get the better.

Oh yea and my prediction did not come true. Minion did not jump as he was arrested in a police sweep of illigal black market rolex manufacturers.

Here are some links to the results.

USA Waterski - Limited Stuff, but a good start, or you can go to...
