Schultz wins ti­tle

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Dim­boola Ski Club mem­ber An­drew Schultz is the Vic­to­rian Bare­foot Club’s 2018 men’s three bare­foot wa­ter­ski cham­pion.

Schultz won the ti­tle at the Vic­to­rian state cham­pi­onships at Max Kir­wan Wa­ter Ski Park, Mul­wala in March.

He went on to com­pete at the Aus­tralian Bare­foot Wa­ter Ski Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide in April, fin­ish­ing ninth in a field of 19 in the men’s three di­vi­sion. This was Schultz’s first sea­son of com­pet­i­tive bare­foot wa­ter­ski­ing.

His foray into com­pe­ti­tion was prompted by par­tic­i­pat­ing in and plac­ing third in men’s three at the Peter Tay­lor Bare­foot Wa­ter­ski Me­mo­rial event at Dim­boola in Oc­to­ber last year.

Bare­foot SA ran the event at Dim­boola Ski Club on the Wim­mera River.

“If I can do it, any­one can do it,” Schultz said.

“We have some very tal­ented wa­ter­skiers in the Wim­mera and I en­cour­age all bare­foot­ers to come and par­tic­i­pate in this year’s Peter Tay­lor Me­mo­rial, which will be at Dim­boola again on Novem­ber 2 and 3.”

The Peter Tay­lor Me­mo­rial event re­mem­bers a great Vic­to­rian and Aus­tralian rep­re­sen­ta­tive bare­foot skier.

The event also aims to boost the sport’s pro­file and raise money for can­cer char­i­ties.
