Im posting this to inspire girls who ride
Yesterday I got to help make a really cool decision. We got a urgent message from IWSF and that we would be able to add a 3rd athlete to participate in the 2009 World Games in Korea.
We just added Raimi Merritt to the Team USA along with Dallas Friday and Andrew Atkinson.
We could have picked a guy but with the such strong talent from both Dallas and Raimi we are sure to win both Gold and Silver in Womans.
Membership to USA Wakeboard, IWSW Wakeboard ranking, and commitment toward the Olympic dream are qualifications for selection for Team USA.
Congrats and huge thanks to Team USA http://www.worldgames2009.tw/wg2009/eng/koc_kaoshiung.php
