Martin Kolman takes overall gold, Regina Jaquess, Adam Sedlmajer and Jamie Metcalfe medal

Martin Kolman won the 2019 Mens Overall World Championship title on Sunday and the unofficial “World’s Best Skier” mantle that comes with it.

Martin, who not only skis on GOODE slalom and trick skis but is employed by the company as pro team coordinator and ski tester, took home gold by edging fellow GOODE teammate Adam Sedlmajer, 2,769.11 points to 2,728.49 points, respectively. Joel Poland (2,717.30) took third.

Martin also earned a bronze in Mens tricks with 11,310 points behind Patricio Font (11,740) and Pierre Ballon (11,550).

In Womens slalom Regina Jaquess came up just short of winning her fourth consecutive World slalom title, tying eventual champ Manon Costard with 3 buoys at 39-1/2 feet off in the final round. In the ensuing runoff Manon scored 2 buoys at 39, while Regina missed two ball by mere inches to finish with a score of 1 at 39 and the silver medal.

GOODE skier Jamie Metcalfe earned the bronze with a huge score of 1 at 39. Currently the No. 8 ranked skier on the IWWF Elite rankings list, the New Zealander is expected to receive quite a boost when the rankings are updated with points from Worlds.

In Men’s slalom, five of the 12 finalists were on GOODE, with Dane Mechler finishing fourth to post the highest finish for Team GOODE. Dane was the top seed heading into the final round and beautifully withstood the pressure by roping an amazing 39 off to get a chance to challenge the three skiers who sat in the lead with 2 at 41 off. After falling while heading to two ball it looked as if he was going to finish with a score of 1 at 41, but the judges determined that he missed his gates so his final score was 0 at 41 off.

Joel Howley emerged from the three way runoff with Freddie Winter (2nd) and Will Asher (3rd) to earn his first world title.

In the team competition, Canada – aided by Team GOODE skier Dorien Llewellyn – edged the United States, 8,025.87 to 8,019.55 points, to claim the team gold. France earned the bronze with 7,933.50 points.

Team GOODE skiers seek titles at this weekend’s Masters

After a rare second-place finish at last year’s event, Team GOODE’s Regina Jaquess will be looking for her 8th career Masters slalom title as the 60th Masters takes place this weekend in Pine Mountain, Ga.

Last year in the semi finals Regina became the first female to run 39-1/2 feet off at the Masters, only to finish second to Manon Costard in a final-round run off. Team GOODE skier and perennial podium threat Karen Truelove will be gunning for her second career Masters title.

On the Men’s side, Thomas Degasperi will be looking to build on his Moomba Masters win earlier this year and add his 2nd career Masters title. He will be joined in the Men’s field by fellow Team GOODE skier Adam Sedlmajer.

GOODE’s Martin Kolman is among the favorites in the Men’s tricks event and Ali Garcia (slalom) competed in her first ever Junior Masters earlier today.

Regina claims fifth straight Swiss Pro Slalom title

It took her two tie breaks in the final round but Regina took care of business, topping the field at Sunday’s Swiss Pro Slalom to win the event for the fifth-consecutive year.

Regina scored 2 buoys at 41-feet off in the second and final tiebreak to win the title and top second-place finisher Whitney McClintock-Rini. Regina’s final tiebreak score was the highest female slalom score of the event and only the second full pass at 39-1/2 off on the day (she scored the other one in the second round).

The Men’s field was missing Team GOODE skier Thomas Degasperi who was involved in a traffic accident the night before. Thomas reported on social media that he was “good … just feel like Tyson came back to the ring and had a go at me.”

Will Asher took first with 4 at 41 off, while Freddie Winter and Sacha Descuns took second and third with 3.25 and 2.5 at 41 off, respectively.

GOODE’s Dane Mechler had a great showing, placing fifth while running into 41 off all three rounds, and Adam Sedlmajer advanced to the finals to finish 7th.

Regina goes for 5 straight at this weekend’s Swiss Pro Slalom

The early-season pro tournament schedule continues this weekend as the Swiss Waterski Resort hosts the Swiss Pro Slalom Sunday in Clermont, Fla.

Regina Jaquess will be attempting to accomplish something that even she hasn’t done before; win a pro event for the fifth-straight year. Last year she topped a stacked field by nearly a full pass while running 39-1/2 off all three rounds. She was the only Women’s competitor to do it even once.

On the Men’s side, Thomas Degasperi will be looking to continue his hot start to the 2019 season, coming off a win at the Moomba Masters and a second-place finish at the Travers Grand Prix. Thomas tied Freddie Winter in the final round, but was edged by Freddie in a run off for the title.

Other Team GOODE skiers expected to compete this weekend are Dane Mechler, Adam Sedlmajer, Alice Bagnoli and Taylor Garcia.

The event begins Sunday at 8am eastern with a live online broadcast. For more info, including running orders and schedule, visit swissproslalom.com.

The 2018 season ended for Regina Jaquess the same way it has 10 previous times during her career: being named the USA Water Ski Female Athlete of the year. Regina was selected for the honor on the basis of a season that saw her win titles at the Swiss Pro Slalom, Americas’ Cup Invitational, Malibu Open, California Waterski Pro Am, GOODE Nationals and Pan American Championships. On top of all that, she threw in a new world record of 4 buoys at 41-feet off for good measure.
