Orlando, FL (May 21, 2017) – Two trick ski World Records were set yesterday behind the record-breaking Ski Nautique 200 by Nautique athletes Aliaksei Zharnasek and Anna Gay. The trick ski world records were broken at the world-renowned Jack Travers Sunset Lakes location in Florida. They are both pending world records until confirmed, and with a trick score of 12,610 for Aliaksei and 10,880 for Anna, they are both incredibly excited to have such amazing results going into next week’s 58th Nautique Masters tournament.
“It feels incredible to put up such a high score as a world record at the first tournament of the season,” said Nautique athlete Aliaksei Zharnasek. “I worked very hard this off-season to try to push the limits of trick skiing even farther, and it is definitely paying off so far. I'm excited to see what I can do this year on the water behind the best boat I could ask for, the Ski Nautique 200.”
This will be the 26th and 27th world records set behind the Ski Nautique 200, and the third in six days after Nautique athlete Nate Smith broke the slalom ski world record last week at the Swiss Pro Slalom. The Ski 200 has once again proven itself as the best waterski boat in the industry.
“Training behind the Nautique 200 has taken my skiing to a whole new level,” said Nautique athlete Anna Gay. “I really enjoy these tournaments at Jack's, the Travers family does an amazing job making sure everything is just right and the Nautique makes me feel like I'm right at home.”
“It's only the beginning of the 2017 season and the Ski Nautique 200 has once again pulled Nautique athletes to World Record performances,” said Nautique president Greg Meloon. “Anna Gay and Aliaksei Zharnasek delivered record setting trick scores and we are delighted to applaud their accomplishments. I also want to thank all of the crew at Sunset Lakes including the judges & officials for all of their hard work for the Nautique Masters LCQ this weekend."
