The USA Adaptive Water Ski Team won the gold medal at the 15th Barbara Bolding/Jim Grew Fund Disabled Water Ski World Championships, Sept. 11-17, at Shortline Lake in Elk Grove, Calif. Canada earned the silver medal and Great Britain earned the bronze medal.
Thirteen athletes represented the 2023 USA Adaptive Water Ski Team at the biennial event. Athletes from 11 countries participated in the championships. The United States tallied 14,010.90 points, followed by Canada with 10,698.07 and Great Britain with 6,963.12 points.
Within each event (slalom, tricks and jumping), athletes were grouped into the three categories of seated (paraplegics and quadriplegics), standing (arm and/or leg disabilities with or without prosthesis) and vision impaired (partially or totally blind). Each competitor in the three categories was awarded in each round of each event a certain number of points according to the relationship of his/her score to the minimum score needed to set or equal a world record in the event for the same disability category and gender as it stood on Jan. 1, 2023.
