Juan Carlos Cuglievan Wins Latin American Championships


Juan Carlos Cuglievan (Perú) won the Latin American Water Ski Championships which were held recently in Apóstoles, Argentina. The tournament was very well organized by the Argentinean federation and the lake conditions were very good. There were 70 skiers from 7 Latin American countries (Argentina, Chile, Perú, Colombia, Brazil, México and the Dominican Republic).

“This is great news!”, said Dave Goode. “I first met Juan Carlos last fall at the 2008 Senior World Championships in Seseña, Spain.”, Goode continues. “Dave Miller introduced us and we proceeded to set Juan Carlos up on a GOODE 9900SL with PowerShell 5 boots. Juan Carlos adapted very quickly to his new equipment as is evident by his recent victory!”, Goode concludes.

Juan Carlos ran 38′off in the preliminary round and received the top seed for the finals. In the final round, the two best scores were 2@38′off and Juan Carlos decided to “play-it-safe” and aimed for 3 ball and ran 3@38′off to win.
