The NANO ONE continues to pile up the records.
In his first tournament on his new NANO ONE, Mike Royal topped his own Men’s disabled V1 (blind) world slalom record not once, not twice, but three times at last weekend’s Aquaplex Slalom Records in Creedmoor, Texas. By the end of the weekend he’d set a pending world record of 1 buoy at 39-1/2 feet off, dramatically topping his existing record of 2-1/2 buoys at 38-feet off that he set earlier this year on a Goode 9900.
At the same tournament defending national Girls 2 slalom champion Bailey Austin tied the South Central Regional Girls 3 slalom record with 2 buoys at 38-feet off. The mark ties Danyelle Bennett’s record from 2004. In her first year in Girls 3 Bailey is already ranking in the top 10 in the U.S. rankings list.
In the Eastern Region, Scott Cerosky scored a personal best 4 buoys at 39-1/2 off to break his own New York State Men’s 5 slalom record. He held the previous record of 2 buoys at 39-1/2 feet off, set in 2011 on his Goode NANO-twist.
