webbdawg99 Posted July 2, 2012 Share Posted July 2, 2012 I just got home from my first Trophy tournament and had a great weekend. But the highlight of the weekend belongs to a M1 skier from Australia named Joel Howley. Prior to this weekend, Joel had run 38 in a tournament ONCE. Then on Saturday, he did it again, setting a new PB by scoring 4@39! Quite an amazing accomplishment. However, the story doesn't end there. Fast forward to Sunday.....just one day after his SECOND tournament 38, Joel comes out and RUNS 39!!!! He's been working at Cobles this summer. He apparently had run 39 in practice a bunch this past week. However, he's never even stood behind the boat at 41 bc the shortest rope at the ski school stops at 39. So he took a crack at 41 for the first time ever and ended up getting 1/2. Amazing skiing with an even more amazing story behind it. I won't be surprised if we all hear more about Joel in the near future. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
