Comments Off on Bronze Medal at 2013 World Games!!

Comments Off on Opening Ceremony, World Games, Cali

Hi everyone,
Colombia is AMAZING!! After a very long flight and an overnight in a different hotel I finally got to Los Andes, outside Cali, yesterday. The Wakeboarding and Water skiing are being held at this golf resort. Last night we attended the Opening Ceremony and I’ve never seen anything like it, even the video below doesn’t capture the atmosphere. It really was the most unforgettable experience with dance, gymnastics and a fantastic fireworks display. There were 35,000 people inside the stadium and another 40,000 outside watching on large screens and apparently there were about 1 million people on the streets!! Today we had our practice run on the Nautique G23. I had some problems with my rope length but hopefully all will be OK tomorrow for qualifying.
Thanks,
David

Hi everyone,
I’m heading off in a few hours to Cali in Colombia for the 2013 World Games. The games are held every four years under the auspices of the IOC (International Olympic Committee). There will be 4,000 athletes from 120 countries and 800 journalists. I’m really excited about being selected to compete at the games as one of only 20 male wakeboarding athletes from all over the world.. If you want to know more about the World Games you can check out the video above.
