They promised an exciting show and they didn’t disappoint.
The World Water Ski Show Tournament, held September 7-9 at Deerhurst Resort, featured more than 100 athletes on six teams from around the world—Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Germany and the United States—showing off incredible tricks that had the crowd cheering wildly.
Although spectators were appreciative of all of the skills displayed, Team Canada got a little extra love from their home-country fans.
The cool, windy weather didn’t create ideal conditions, but the athletes handled the choppy water like pros.
On Saturday morning, Team Belgium had to wait for the ramp to be reset but spectators wouldn’t let them lose momentum, cheering, “Let’s go Belgium, let’s go!” When they finally took to the water, the team invited everyone ‘The Royal Banquet’ with their James Bond 007 theme.
