McClintock an obvious choice. Cambridge’s Whitney McClintock cheers during her quadruple gold medal win at the world championships in Calgary. She was named Cambridge Athlete of the Year tonight.

With such an illustrious list of Tim Turow Award nominees, it's hard to call anything a slam dunk.
Then again, no one had a year like Whitney McClintock. The 20-year-old water-skier won seven gold medals at world championships and six more at the Canadian championships, along with various other honours, to take home the Cambridge Athlete of the Year Award tonight at the annual Cambridge Sports Awards Banquet at the Cambridge Holiday Inn.
It was McClintock's second Tim Turow win, as she also took the crown in 2007.
McClintock was up against some lofty local names – Lindsay Carson (track), Lisa Leskien (ultra-marathon), Jackie Brown (freestyle skiing), Nathan Brannen (track), Ryan Ellis (hockey) and Bryce Davison (figure skating) – but no one dragged home the hardware like the University of Central Florida student.

This was a glorious day here in Putrajaya. Hot sunshine and good skiing conditions created the perfect welcome for our World Cup athletes as they arrived from 15 countries around the world. IWWF Homologator Nigel Talamo GBR and Organiser Hanifah Yoong and his team put the finishing touches to the Jump and Slalom courses as the sun set beyond the Putrajaya City skyline.
Enjoying the sunshine this afternoon were Ty and Rick Oppenlander USA, Clementine Lucine FRA, Marion Aynaud FRA, Danyelle Bennett USA, Aliaksei Zharnasek BLR, Herman Beliakou BLR, Nicolas LeForestier FRA, Freddy Krueger USA, Karen Truelove USA, Natalia Berdnikova BLR, Will Furze GBR/MasterCraft, Boris Laval FRA, Anais Amade FRA, Billy Susi USA, Aaron Larkin NZL, Jonathan Travers USA, Nick Parsons USA, Jodi Fisher GBR and Will Asher. Many more will arrive later tonight.
Natalia Berdnikova BLR created history – or at least pending history ! Competing in Central Florida today, Natalia scored 9080 points. This makes her the first woman in the world to ever score more than 9000 points.
Behind this extraordinary performance is a fascinating sequence of events. Natalia was injured a year ago. While working on her recovery, Clementine Lucine FRA also hit the headlines over and over again. We have lost count with the number of pending World Shortboard Records she scored. She did get a confirmed 8840 points to take the World Record – but also scored 8930 points which did not pass the Judges final decision. Certainly, World Cup star Clementine Lucine looked set to break that 9000 barrier. If the Judges confirm Natalia’s 9080 points today, her name will certainly enter the history books.

Like a barge navigating the Mississippi, rainwater from Thursday's historic thunderstorm is drifting slowly and inevitably toward the southern end of Bossier Parish, with local officials racing to make preparations. Bla bla bla Yadda Yadda Yadda So lets to trick skiing!
