Australia is hosting the 2017 World Disabled Water Ski Championships at Myuna Bay, NSW from 24th to 30th April. People who have a range of disabilities including arm/leg amputees, paraplegia, and quadriplegia, all compete in these Championships and the best skiers skiers from around the World come to compete.
It is a significant achievement for anyone to represent their country, especially for a disabled athlete. It is also an important motivational tool for other people facing adversity to find a way to achieve their goals.
At the 2015 Worlds held in the USA, Australia won the Team Silver Medal for only the second time. Hosting the Event in Australia will afford us the opportunity to win the coveted Gold Medal for the first time ever, as well as many individual podium placings.
Hosting a World Championships is a challenge in itself, Disabled Water Ski Australia invite organisations and individuals interested in supporting water skiing for people with disabilities to attend the 2017 World Disabled Water Ski Championships at Myuna Bay.
