Regina’s new world record of 3-1/2 at 41 off approved by the IWWF

Regina Jaquess’ pending Women’s world slalom record of 3-1/2 buoys at 41-feet off has been approved by the IWWF’s tournament council. (Watch her record-breaking performance here.)

Set while riding the 2017 Nano 1 on November 5th at the Isles Junior Invitational at the Isles of Lake Hancock in Winter Garden, Fla., the new record surpasses Regina’s own world record of 3-1/4 buoys at 41 feet off she set in 2014.

The new record is her seventh world slalom record of her career, with her first coming in 2009.

 

Regina sets pending world record of 3-1/2 at 41 off

As if to put an exclamation mark on another dominating season, Regina Jaquess set a new pending world record at this weekend’s Isles Junior Invitational at the Isles of Lake Hancock in Winter Garden, Fla.

Riding the 2017 Nano One, Regina scored 3-1/2 buys at 41-feet off to top her own current mark by a quarter buoy.

If approved by the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation’s Tournament Council, it will be her seventh world slalom record, her first coming in 2009.

Adam Sedlmajer claims U.S. Open Men’s slalom title

As a two-time world overall champion, Team GOODE’s Adam Sedlmajer is best known for his three-event prowess.  But after last weekend, he’s now also known for something else: being the 2016 U.S. Open Men’s Slalom champion.

The seventh seed heading into the finals, Adam put the pressure on the higher-seeded skiers with a huge score of 3 buoys at 41 off, then waited to see if it would stand up.

“I knew that 3 at 41 was a solid score that could put me on a podium, but my back up score wasn’t so great so there was a bit of doubt,” said Adam.  “Watching everyone ski was definitely not easy especially since everyone ran 39 off. Lots of emotions, especially at the end.”

The win was secured for Adam when top-seed Nate Smith fell just short with 2-1/2 buoys at 41, good enough for second.

Team GOODE took two of the top-three spots as Martin Bartalsky finished third with 2 at 41, marking his first ever professional slalom podium.

In Women’s slalom, Regina Jaquess was unable to keep her 28-month pro winning streak alive, finishing second behind champion Whitney McClintock by three-quarters of a buoy.  While Regina does not take losing lightly, she can at least take solace in her third-consecutive U.S. Open Women’s Overall title.

Team GOODE placed four skiers in the Women’s slalom finals, with Brooke Baldwin finishing just off the podium in 4th, Clementine Lucine 5th and Breanne Dodd 6th.

The name and even the location of the tournament may have changed, but one thing has remained the same over the last five years at the California Pro-Am: Regina Jaquess taking the Women’s slalom crown.
