Irish Wake Team Selected For Worlds
IRISH WORLD WAKEBOARD CHAMPIONSHIPS TEAM FOR ITALY JULY 13/17
No sooner had the dust settled on our very successful National Wakeboard Championships last weekend at Eskragh Lake in Dungannon when it was time for our Federation Selectors to face the challenge of agreeing who has earned a place to represent us in the WORLD WAKEBOARD CHAMPIONSHIPS scheduled for July 13/17 in Milan, Italy. Thankfully, we do not have to travel to the far ends of the earth on this occasion and this should increase our chances of taking some scalps in just THREE WEEKS from now !
CONGRATULATIONS to our EIGHT selected Riders and we wish them every success in the 2011 WORLD WAKEBOARD CHAMPIONSHIPS. Fielding a relatively large team will certainly improve our final Team scores. Here you can also see the first glimpse of our official 2011 Irish Team Kit released in Dungannon last weekend and to be worn by both Riders and Skiers at IWWF titled events this season. Next year, we do hope to have the Kit available on line for Team Athletes to simplify the ordering and payment process.
