Last day under 21 worlds

A great final for Toni – she increased her jump score to 38.6 & placed 9th  Jacinta Carroll from Australia took the gold with 53.8m
It was meant to be 2 gold jump medals for Aussie but Tim Bradstreet took an insanely late jump on his 1
st approach to the ramp to have a huge out the back (must have been awful as Glen Williams said it was the latest & worst he had seen). Tim was unable to continue.
Aussie came 2
nd in the teams event. NZ 9th.

Check out the photos attached.
Greetings on Day 2 with another early start, this morning, with a cross breeze on the lake, making it more pleasant for the spectators.
Alex King had his slalom and grabbed 1.5@11.25, only half a buoy off his PB. The cut to make men's final in Slalom was 4.5@11.75.
With Glen Williams in the commentary position, we are all well informed on every skier that skis past us.
The Isles of Lake Hancock  is a truly World Class site, and we are most grateful to the residents who live in this piece of Paradise, for opening up the gates of their community, to allow us great viewing under leafy trees right alongside the lake.
The afternoon brings us to the First Round of Jump, with Georgia O'Connell as NZ's first competitor. She achieved 2 PB's with 37.1 and 38.1 in stunning conditions. Clearly, the coaching she received from our very own Kyle Eade ( Kiwi) at Ski Fluid was beneficial.
The ramp was raised to 5.5 foot for the next group of skiers, and Toni Atkinson equalled her PB with a jump of 38.3 which secures her a place in the Jump Final.
There will be 12 skiers in each final except women's Jump, which will only have 10 skiers, as there are only 17 Women jumping in the preliminary round.
The excitement built as the Men's Jump kicked off with Curtis Williams, second off the dock. Curtis found out during Familiarisation that he had to jump off the 5.5foot (1.65m) ramp as it is the minimum height for Under 21 Men. He took a quick trip out to Ski Fluid with Kyle Eade for a few last minute passes at this new height before he had to compete.
He banged out 2 PB's of 34.9 then 37.6. He assures us he will be jumping over 38m before too long as he had no problem with the higher ramp height!!
Alex had a disappointing set gaining a 54.9m jump but not making the Final, for which he needed to jump 55.8m Cheers Karenphotophoto
