The IWWF has awarded Shalom Park the bid to host the 2019 IWWF World Under 21 Waterski Championships from 4th to 7th July 2019.

Shalom Park is a man-made water ski lake nestled in the North Saskatchewan River Valley, just south of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Shalom Park was built in 1985 and has hosted a multitude of local, national and international tournaments, including multiple Canadian National Championships, the Canadian Open (an IWWF Elite event), and the 1996 Junior World Water Ski Championships.  Multiple national and international records have been set at Shalom Park, including an IWWF Open Men Overall record in 2000 by Jaret Llewellyn from Canada and an IWWF Junior Men Slalom Record by Chris Parrish from the USA, that stood for almost 20 years until it was broken by Robert Pigozzi from the Dominican Republic in 2015.

The 2019 IWWF World Under 21 Waterski Championships will be supported by Waterski & Wakeboard Canada, the national governing body for towed water sports in Canada, and towed by the all-new Ski Nautique.

Canada won the team overall title at the 2017 IWWF World Under 21 Waterski Championships held in Dnipro, Ukraine ahead of Team USA (2nd) and Belarus (3rd).  Full Results

@BraceMaker, if you look closely, most of the buoys except 6 (near the jump) and 4 (in the wider section) are quite close to shore. 5 stands out because it is immediately after a wider section of the lake. Ball 5 and the others are about 40-50 feet from shore. Ball 5 is about 40 feet away. Ball 1 on the far end of the photo is probably the closest, maybe not quite 40 feet.

 

 

The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.
