University Worlds Wrap Up

This is the wrap up vid from the University Worlds held in Chile Jan 12th -15th. And it is probably the best wrap vid to date. Only complaint is when it mentions 15 countries and 40 skiers... There are over 200 countries in the world and only 15 send teams? IWSF needs to get its shit together and instead of harassing local organizing committees about TV coverage they should be working with water ski federations in countries around the world to get teams together.

We have been going over thousands of pages of old AWSA documents* recently and have been looking at how many world feds there were back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. It is very disappointing to see where we are now compared to the explosive growth water skiing saw in those decades. Our current world and US leadership for that matter have failed to push the sport forwards. At the world level it is time for a change in leadership and direction, at the US level we might want to start thinking about a change as well.

*We do not have any association with USAWS or AWSA beyond paying our dues every year and skiing a few tournies here and there.
